  • We see significant fiduciary risk for institutional investors participating in legal action to push energy companies to speed the energy transition
  • For oil companies, there is an inverse correlation today between the degree of energy transition proposed in your strategy and your stock market performance.
  • Investors seeking more change may fail their clients on financial returns – forcing change that might hurt earnings is better left to activists and governments.
  • We look at the expanding competitive advantage in US chemicals, but with export logistics still challenging; we compare results in agriculture and coatings.
  •  We look at forward natural gas estimates, question their value, and note the surprising strength in the US used car market – something likely to change.

Last week we discussed 23 Chemicals and Related Products and 126 Companies.
