Look, we get a China deal, we get that trade in better balance, we get equipment not just soybeans, we get China buying Apple products and, most, important, we get them buying our natural gas, creating a huge amount of jobs in Louisiana and Texas? Then this rally is in its infancy.

Kenyan security forces have killed all the Somali militants who stormed an upscale Nairobi hotel compound, taking at least 21 lives and forcing hundreds of people into terrifying escapes, the government said on Wednesday. Fifty people believed to have been in the complex remained unaccounted for on Wednesday afternoon, the Kenya Red Cross said, raising the possibility of a much higher final death toll. The bloody bodies of five attackers were broadcast across social media as President Uhuru Kenyatta announced the end of a 20-hour overnight siege that echoed a 2013 assault that killed 67 people in the Westgate shopping centre in the same district.
Global companies including BASF (BASFn.DE), DowDuPont(DWDP.N), Procter & Gamble (PG.N) and SABIC have formed an alliance to fight plastic waste, pledging to spend $1.5 billion (£1.1 billion) over the next five years. The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW), unveiled by its 28 founding companies on Wednesday, convened amid reports of a worsening environmental crisis from about 8 million tonnes of plastic waste that end up in oceans every year, which has triggered bans on some single-use plastic products. Current alliance members have committed more than $1 billion to the project over the next five years, while money that additional members will pledge should take the five-year budget to about $1.5 billion, a spokesman said.
Dow is playing a lead role in the formation of a new alliance of global companies to advance solutions that eliminate plastic waste in the environment, especially in the ocean. Dow is a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW), a newly formed organization committing more than $1 billion with the goal of raising $1.5 billion over the next five years to develop and scale solutions that manage plastic waste and promote post-use solutions of plastic.
Gunmen blasted their way into a hotel and office complex in the Kenyan capital on Tuesday, killing at least seven people and sending workers diving under desks from an attack claimed by Somali Islamists al Shabaab. Police warned the "terror attack", which echoed a 2013 assault on a Nairobi shopping centre, may be ongoing, with assailants still inside the upscale 14 Riverside Drive complex.
A French court cancelled the licence for one of Monsanto's glyphosate-based weedkillers on Tuesday over safety concerns, placing an immediate ban on Roundup Pro 360 in the latest legal blow to the Bayer-owned business. Germany's Bayer (BAYGn.DE), which bought Monsanto for $63 billion last year, faces thousands of U.S. lawsuits by people who say its Roundup and Ranger Pro products caused their cancer. A court in Lyon in southeast France ruled that the approval granted by French environment agency ANSES in 2017 for Roundup Pro 360 had failed to take into account potential health risks.
German business software group SAP said all staff working at its office in Nairobi had been brought to safety after an attack by gunmen on a hotel and office complex in the Kenyan capital. "We have confirmation that all our staff have been accounted for," a company spokeswoman said in response to a Reuters inquiry.

Specialty Chemicals: Updates for the Week Ending January 11 ## W.R. Grace gets a new order On January 8, W.R. Grace (GRA) announced that it got a new order for its UNIPOL PP Process Technology. W.R. Grace will grant the licenses to Hanwha Total Petrochemical for its new PP production plant in Daesan, South Korea. The new facility will have the capacity to produce 400 kilotons per year. The plant is expected to be completed by 2021. W.R. Grace didn’t specify anything about the financial aspects of the deal. Hanwha Total Petrochemical is a joint venture between Hanwha General Chemicals and Total S.A.—a French oil and gas company. The companies have 13 plants in Daesan producing polymers, oil products, and base chemicals. Laura Schwinn, the president of W.R. Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business segment, said, “Grace is pleased to be selected to provide our technology and catalysts to Hanwha Total Petrochemical and to help them offer the broad capability and most advanced resins that deliver significant value to their customers.” ## Stock update W.R. Grace stock gained 1.4% for the previous week and closed at $67.81. Since the beginning of 2019, the stock has gained 4.5%. In 2018, the stock fell 7.4%. Analysts expect W.R. Grace’s target price to be $82.83, which implies a return potential of 22.2% over the closing price on January 11. W.R. Grace’s 14-day relative strength index of 66 suggests that the stock is moving closer to the “overbought” position. Investors could hold W.R. Grace indirectly by investing in the iShares U.S. Basic Materials ETF (IYM). IYM has invested 0.8% of its portfolio in W.R. Grace. The fund also has exposure to DowDuPont (DWDP), Linde (LIN), and LyondellBasell (LYB) with weights of 21.5%, 15%, and 4.6%, respectively, as of January 11.

India approved Monsanto's GM cotton seed trait in 2002 and an upgraded variety in 2006, helping transform the country into the world's top producer and second-largest exporter of the fibre.
