Chemical Plays

[On Dow Chemical] "They have an interesting dynamic that will be occurring later on this year, in that they're joint-venturing some of their chemical businesses and plastics businesses with the Kuwaitis, and they're going to receive an enormous amount of cash for that...We think they will choose to reinvest that in acquisitions and perhaps some share buybacks."
