China has extreme excess butadiene supply...not sure how much of an edge Kraton's products have over the competition.
The elimination of a number of unprofitable products, a new pricing policy that raises prices more quickly than in the past, a significant drop in the prices of its key inputs, and negative earnings caused solely by the company's use of FIFO accounting...not terrible performance all should act as catalysts to eventually drive Kraton's stock higher over the next year.Deej

I'm looking for a gain of about 50% to $45/share.
A plastics company with a compelling P/E ratio.It has several interesting new products including a polymer for use making the interior panels for cars. This new polymer is 30 to 40% lighter which should appeal to car companies seeking to achieve better fuel economy. If that weren't enough, Kraton's new polymer is molded at lower temperatures. This equates to cost/energy savings as well.This is just one example of Kraton's pipeline. Maybe that is why they are expecting to eventually have 20% of revenue coming from newly developed products.
