Global Indicators Lift Concerns, Rocky Times Far From Over

  • Concerning data points, such as higher than expected inflation and concerns with global food supply, continue to mount in 1H22, and quick fixes are unlikely.
  • US chemical industry health indicators have turned negative, especially for some facing new commodity market supply when demand growth may lose momentum.
  • Rising input costs are an added problem for sectors/products with limited pricing power; the fertilizer space displays more pricing power than others.
  • We highlight a higher level of caution in the tone among companies reporting 1Q22 results late in the season, which is consistent with our mounting concerns.
  • Otherwise, we look at energy (again) and the strategic challenges facing the majors, some disconnects on shipping, and the problems in China.

Last week we discussed 32 Chemicals and related products and 170 Companies.
