    Huntsman’s (NYSE: HUN) shares have had an excellent run up in recent weeks, gaining 10% year-to-date, which also meant a fresh 52-week high in late January. For its shareholders, there could be more in store as the chemical giant checks in with its fourth-quarter numbers next week.

    Huntsman has surprised in each of the past four quarters, even when peers failed to deliver. There are reasons to believe it more »

    Note: A previous version of this article erroneously referenced a substantial decline in CVR Partners's most recent distribution. While the distribution did decline, it was related to a one time plant turnaround and the company expects the distribution to grow in the future. The article has been adjusted accordingly.

    Some stocks don’t even pause to catch a breath. Look at Eastman Chemical’s (NYSE: EMN) wild ride in 2012 – I have lost count of the new highs it created this year. And there’s no stopping it -- the stock hit $65.07 last week -- an all-time high for Eastman.

    Many are sulking over the missed opportunity, and the question that’s troubling them is: Will Eastman do an more »

    If anyone tells you about a stock that’s trading at a paltry 5 times earnings and is within 20% of its 52-week low, you’d probably jump at the opportunity. I would have done the same, if the industry in which Kronos Worldwide (NYSE: KRO) operates wasn’t so unpredictable.

    Even before Agrium’s (NYSE: AGU) second-quarter results were out, the market knew what was coming. After all, the fertilizer giant had upgraded its earnings guidance some days back.

    What followed was music to investors’ ears. It was Agrium’s strongest second quarter in history. Being a nitrogen player definitely helps, but there are other advantages too, which I feel will take the company far.

    The record U.S. planting season might be well behind us, but its benefits won’t stop spilling over so soon. After Monsanto’s (NYSE: MON) stellar third-quarter results last month, it’s time for chemical major DuPont (NYSE: DD) to steal the show next week. Dupont and planting? Yes. DuPont is fast emerging as an agricultural play since it acquired food company Danisco last year. And this is what more »
