ASH recent earnings report via S & P 2011 "Q1 (Dec) operating EPS of $1.20, vs. $0.91, well ahead of our $1.05 estimate.
Sales expanded by 6% and EBITDA margins
widened by 100 basis points."The CEO also reports that ASH expects higher margins in 2012 due to expense reductions and higher profit margins on new investment in International Specialty Chemical a personal care product maker. I think ASH looks like a promising investment for 2012.

I think with Ashland's purchase of ISP, ASH's earnings will climb steadily for the next few years.

Too many people think of ASH as a company that's centered on the Valvoline name--which simply is not the case today.

The dynamic change from acquiring ISP will be huge.

This company is selling (march) its most underperforming business unit ( distribution of chemicals) to pocket around $900M to invest in the chemical speciality business . The next 6 months will be critical to see how well this strategy is developping.

They are the sole manufacturer of many chemicals which have growing worldwide demand. This stock grows steadily and survives the small downturns well.

This met a high level screen to indicate a buy and strong outperform against its peers (other tickers in its industry). My 1st version of this spreadsheet devles deep into the company's balnace sheet and recent income statements, combined with other relevant price data for the company including insider/institutional holdings, short interest, debt levels, etc.
Testing capabilities of this 1st version of my automated, valuation spreadhseet matched with my personal criteria and see how it holds up.

wouldnt buy untill the end of october, after that the hurcules aquition should be accurtive to earnings. If this ever makes it back to single digits buy w/both hands. book value of $48.00 p/sh,makes this compelling takeover target, as well as insuruance that it could be worth more bankrupt than what one might currently pay for it.

Aqualon is a strong business with solid operating profit. Currently under pressure due to the downturn in construction and coatings but still with some markets not too much affected by the economical downturn. Once building picks up again margins and sales should improve which will help EBIT.
Once a buyer is found for the Valvoline division debt could be reduced helping the balance sheet.

Great Balance sheet. P/B of 0.37 and P/S of 0.16. They´ll get their margins up once this brakes.

After reading some articles on how this company is poised to rise from the ashes of the recession, I dug further and liked everything I saw about them. Seems like a great value play, which is my favorite kind.
