    Methanex Investor M&G Plans to Nominate Four Board Directors

    M&G Investment Management Ltd., which owns a 16.5 percent stake in Vancouver-based Methanex, said in a letter to shareholders Monday that it has raised concerns with management about the risks of building the plant without a partner. M&G said it plans to nominate the directors at the company’s shareholder meeting in April because it doesn’t believe Methanex takes seriously its concerns that building the plant alone could stress its balance sheet and make it harder to pay dividends and repurchase shares. “We are concerned that there is not sufficient oversight from the independent directors within the board room to maintain financial discipline in what is a relatively indebted company in a cyclical business,” M&G said.

    DowDuPont's stock falls after Cowen cuts rating, turns 'ambivalent' on chemical industry

    Shares of DowDuPont Inc. fell 0.7% in morning trade Wednesday, after Cowen downgraded the chemical company and the industry, citing weakening macro conditions. Analyst Charles Neivert cut his rating on DowDuPont to market perform from outperform, and reduced his industry outlook to cautious. "Our industry view has become more circumspect in light of multiple risk factors which may constrain earnings, with a particular focus on the expanding supply/demand imbalance, strained feedstock supply and logistics, low oil prices and slowing GDP growth especially in regions important to U.S. chemical trade," Neivert wrote in a note to clients. "It has been 11-to-12 years since we were so universally ambivalent about owning chemical shares." DowDuPont's stock has shed 25% over the past 12 months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 1.9%. Neivert also downgraded Celanese Corp. , Eastman Chemical Co. , Methanex Corp. and AdvanSix Inc. , all to market perform from outperform.
