    Westlake Chemical Misses Big on Fourth-Quarter Earnings

    The international manufacturer and supplier of petrochemicals reported fourth-quarter net income plunged to $123 million, or 95 cents a share, missing analysts' estimates of $1.65. The company said the period's disparity is owed to a one-time, non-cash tax benefit of $591 million in 2017 thanks to a reduced U.S. corporate income tax rate under the new U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The company blamed the big fourth-quarter miss on lower sales prices for its products due to lower oil prices and global trade uncertainties that affected domestic and export prices.
