The Street's Chemical Romance
The chemical sector is heating up, with Dmitry Silversteyn, Longbow Research analyst


The Street’s Chemical Romance

"I thought Dow (Chemical) paid a pretty full price for Rohm & Haas , so the Rohm & Haas shareholders you could argue are getting the better of this deal, but in return Dow is getting an excellent asset that was selling at a discount that the market was not recognizing, so it did improve their growth and it reduced their cyclicality, so overall it’s a good deal for both companies…Given the selloff in the Dow stock following the deal, this may not be a bad time to step up to the plate.

Dmitry Silversteyn, Longbow Research Analyst

Bullish on General Electric

"We like their industrials, and how strong they are, and we think that's going to continue into the future. They're at multi-year lows, look at forward PE, and that's why we like GE at this point."
