Boring diversified chemical business overlooked and oversold. Price dropped 11% in 3 days after earnings report that revealed only a small revenue increase from a year ago and a declined operating earnings. Of their 4 segments, speciality fluids and intermediates was the only area that showed the declining sales revenue. The 11% sell-off is what I would expect to see from a speculation growth company, not a large cap, stable business with already one of the lowest P/Es in the industry. Maybe overshadowed by the gains of DOW chemical this year, the drop just brought value to an already great value-stock.

I picked this stock because it is rated 10 by Stockscouter, it has a dividend and a beta computed by Yahoo Finance of more than 1.

This is a stock that one of my investment clubs bought yesterday, so it is a real-life holding of mine.

Sales have grown at an average annual rate of 15% over the past 5 years. EPS has grown at an average annual rate of 24% over the past 7 years, though in a very choppy fashion. The pre-tax profit margin has increased steadily since 2007, with the exception of 2012. The earned-on-equity has been fluctuating quite a bit, but was almost 30% last year, (which is a good margin number). The debt has also been fluctuating quite a bit. These last two factors will have to be monitored, in case they undercut my investment thesis that this stock is looking pretty good overall on its fundamentals.

The P/E is currently sitting above its historic averages, though is lower than the peaks reached in 4 of the last 5 years, so not wildly expensive. (And considering I show the P/E to be around 11, that is still pretty cheap.) The PEG ratio is quite low at 0.57. The stock pays about a 2% dividend, and considering the payout ratio was below 17% last year, there is room for that dividend to grow, if management so desires.

I think that this stock could go as high as $215 in the next 5 years, or about 2-1/2 times its current price. Add in that 2% dividend, and I think that this stock could return me 23% per year over the next 5 years. That is what my investment club and myself are hoping for anyway. We'll have to see if my assumptions play out, and whether the debt and earned-on-equity can stabilize or, even better, move in beneficial directions.

the company reported record earnings a few weeks ago, and was selling around 100 per share. the reason the price has dropped is because people have freaked out about the economy. They are also about to raise their dividend to 52 cents per share. They have also recently announced a 2:1 stock split, which means more people can afford to buy the stock which i beleive will ultimatly make the stock more valuable in the end. This is a very strong company, and if i had the money i would buy in. However, before anyone buys this stock off my word do your own research. I am 18, and have very little experience in the market

This stock qualifies for my high stable dividends screen, which typically outperforms the S&P 500 by more than 10% per year. The idea of the screen is to look for stocks that meet the following criteria: (1) dividend yields above 2% (2) stock seems undervalued and (3) dividend appears to be sustainable or growing. I think that Mr. Market will reward this type of stock in the near future as investors flee bonds in search of higher yields. Stable stocks should look appealing given the uncertain economic future for developed economies. The current dividend yield of Eastman Chemical Company is about 2.4%. Current ROE is 27% and the stock is trading for just 11 times expected earnings. The current payout ratio is 0.3 and the five year average payout ratio is 0.4

Their plan to make chemicals from coal gasification technology is not viable as long as natural gas prices are low. Cost of new technology exceeds current market value of company.

EMN is undervalued when compared to total market. It took a bigger hit than it should have in the market collapse.

One of the leading players in gassification technology. Due to their knowledge of this technology, Eastman has the ability to significantly get around the chemical commodity dependence on oil, and obtain alternative feedstocks as necessary. I see this as being a huge competitive advantage in the coming future. Add to that their stock and debt buyback program, the company seems solid.

Overall, I think Eastman will provide a pretty good return on investment over the next decade.

Eastman Chemical is involved in the coal gasification process and is always recommended on "Fast Money" by Pete Najarian. They pay a dividend, but the real story is coal gasification. Ethanol has been a bust, and our country needs to keep the flow of dollars within the US by eliminating our dependence on foreign oil. Eastman is a buy for the long term.

EMN will most likely maintain an outperform trend for a few weeks. Due to pay a dividend within a few weeks and since it has pulled back some today, I think it has some room for an upswing over the next few weeks.
