Olin (OLN) expects closure of the Freeport facility to reduce annual fixed costs and match its production capacity with the market's current needs.
Closures are expected to cut annual costs by $35 million while aligning production capacity to better meet the market's reduced demand.
Olin Corp. said Wednesday it is planning to permanently shut down a chlor alkali plant with a capacity of 230,000 tons before the end of 2020, reducing its annual operating costs by about $35 million. The Clayton, Mo.-based manufacturer of chemical products said it expects to book pretax non-cash charges of about $65 million in the fourth quarter. "With today's announcement we have taken necessary steps to reduce our annual fixed costs, align our production capacity with the current needs of the marketplace and focus on the chlorine derivatives that generate the most value for the organization," Chief Executive John E. Fischer said in a statement. Olin shares rose 1.5% premarket, but have fallen 15% in 2019 through Tuesday, while the S&P 500 has gained 25%.

The name of the game right now is risk avoidance. Numerous macroeconomic issues - the U.S.-China trade war, interest-rate uncertainty and global growth concerns - have conspired to knock the major indices from their recent peaks. The worries have intensified so much, so quickly, that you should start to monitor your portfolio for stocks to sell (and value traps to avoid, if you're prone to buying dips).Weeding out weak holdings can limit your losses, after all. Stocks that can't ride the broader markets higher because of their own fundamental issues are at risk of even deeper cuts when the rising tide isn't lifting all the boats anymore.One way to monitor for weakness is to look at the dividend-focused fundamentals captured by the DIVCON system from exchange-traded fund provider Reality Shares. DIVCON examines the payout health of the dividend stocks among the market's 1,200 largest companies, rating metrics such as earnings growth, free cash flow (how much cash companies have left over after they meet all their obligations), and even the Altman Z-score, which helps assess a company's likelihood of a bond default or bankruptcy.The resulting rating system (a 1-5 scale in which DIVCON 5 indicates the healthiest of payouts and DIVCON 1 indicates dividends at the most risk) is intended to gauge a dividend's sustainability and chance of growth. But given the data that DIVCON measures, a low rating also can help identify companies with less-than-desirable overall fundamentals.Here are seven dividend stocks to sell or avoid that have earned the lowest overall DIVCON rating (1). Each of these has underperformed the market during its 15% year-to-date run. And each looks more vulnerable during this current bout of uncertainty.
