Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB), a leader in the global specialty chemicals industry, proudly announces that Chile Country Manager, Ellen Lenny-Pessagno, has been recognized as one of the "100 Global Inspiring Women in Mining" (WIM100) by Women in Mining (WIM) U.K. The biennial WIM100 publication celebrates the "above and beyond" contributions of women to the global mining industry.
The only problem is that Albemarle's adjusted earnings came in nearly 30% lower year over year in the third quarter. The huge gain in November has priced in a lot of good news at Albemarle that just doesn't look like it's in the cards over the next few months or quarters. Using the top end of management's 2020 guidance range, Albemarle's P/E ratio is currently 32.
