    APD to Build Second Hydrogen Plant in California

    APD to Build Second Hydrogen Plant in California ## APD to build second hydrogen facility in California On January 7, Air Products and Chemicals (APD) announced that it plans to build a second liquid hydrogen plant in California. The decision came on the back of the increase in demand from various consumer markets, specifically from the growing demand for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. APD also said the project development work is already underway and expects the plant to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2019. However, APD did not specify the financial aspects of building the plant. Liquefied hydrogen is used in several industries like electronics, material handling, float glass, edible fats and oils, chemical and petrochemical, and so on. In September 2018, APD announced its plan to build a liquid hydrogen plant in La Porte, Texas. Marie Folkes, APD’s president for the Americas segment, said, “Current customer demand for liquid hydrogen is driving the need for this new investment as we are experiencing growth from many traditional market segments, for which a reliable source of this product is vitally important. Additionally, this new capacity will be available for the steadily increasing demand from hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.” ## Stock prices APD stock declined 1.0% and closed at $159.93. The decline in the stock price pushed the stock to trade 0.8% below its 100-day moving average price of $161.31. In 2018, APD declined by 2.5% and outperformed the S&P 500. With several projects scheduled to be commissioned in 2019, APD’s growth path looks intact. Investors can indirectly hold APD by investing in the iShares U.S. Basic Materials ETF (IYM). IYM invests 6.2% of its portfolio in APD. The fund also provides exposure to DowDuPont (DWDP), Linde (LIN), and LyondellBasell (LYB) with weights of 21.8%, 14.9%, and 4.70%, respectively, as of January 7, 2019.

On January 7, PPG Industries announced that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Hemmelrath—an automotive coating manufacturer. PPG Industries expects the deal to be completed in the first half of 2019. However, PPG Industries didn’t disclose the financial aspects of the acquisition. Hemmelrath is PPG Industries’ second acquisition in the past month. On December 14, PPG Industries entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Whitford Worldwide. The acquisitions suggest that PPG Industries is looking to grow its top and bottom line through an acquisition strategy. The acquisition will likely complement PPG Industries’ automotive segment and increase the company’s foothold. Michael McGarry, PPG Industries’ chairman and CEO, said, “We are excited to add Hemmelrath to our robust and diversified automotive coatings offering. This acquisition is another step forward in our strategic growth plan that will provide further value to our customers and shareholders.” ## Stock price PPG Industries closed on a positive note with a marginal gain of 0.3%. PPG Industries closed at $100.24 on January 7. So far, PPG Industries has fallen 2% in 2019.

    Analyzing Chemical Companies in the Week Ending January 4 ## Corteva sold its herbicide product line On January 3, American Vanguard (AVD) announced that it acquired the Quizalofop product line of herbicides from Corteva Agriscience—DowDuPont’s (DWDP) agriculture division. However, the parties didn’t disclose any of the financial aspects of the deal. The product line includes soybeans, canola, and pulses sold in the US and Canada. As part of the transaction, American Vanguard will get technical registrations, commercial sales information, and the transfer of existing product supply arrangements. Eric Wintemute, American Vanguard’s chairman and CEO, said, “Our acquisition of the QPE product line from Corteva Agriscience provides our crop protection business with a portfolio of valuable herbicide brands that hold significant leadership positions in the North American market. These products are complementary to existing glyphosate, glufosinate and 2,4D use, and are highly regarded for weed and grass control by providing a broad window of application and excellent crop safety.” ## DowDuPont’s stock price DowDuPont’s stock prices gained 3.2% and closed at $54.73 for the week ending January 4. Despite the gain in the stock price, DowDuPont traded 9.8% below the 100-day moving average price of $60.71. DowDuPont’s 100-day moving average has fallen from a high of $72.06 to the current levels, which indicates weakness in the stock. DowDuPont struggled in 2018 with a decline of 24.9%. However, DowDuPont has started 2019 on a positive note. DowDuPont’s 14-day relative strength index of 52 indicates that the stock isn’t overbought or oversold. Investors could hold DowDuPont indirectly by investing in the Materials Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLB). XLB has invested 21.9% of its portfolio in DowDuPont. XLB also provides exposure to Linde (LIN), Air Products and Chemicals (APD), and LyondellBasell (LYB) with weights of 15.1%, 6.2%, and 4.7%, respectively, as of January 4.
