Shares have been increasing consitently, with very low gross marigins (10-15%), maybe good for the customers, but not the shareholders! Other chemical companies (Monsanto for example), are running closer to 45-50% for the gross margins. Liabilibities are increasing as well. A dividend increase would help them, but I don't think that is happening any time soon.
