GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Chemtura Corporation

Mario Gabelli Comments on Chemtura Corp. - Jan 29, 2014

Chemtura Corp. (CHMT)(0.1%) (CHMT - $27.92 - NYSE) is a global developer, manufacturer, and marketer of engineered specialty chemicals. Its products are used as additives, ingredients, or intermediates, serving major industries such as agriculture, building & construction, consumer, energy, electrical & electronics, transportation, and general industrial. Since its emergence from Chapter 11 in November 2010, under the leadership of Craig Rogerson, the management team has focused on actively managing its portfolio via investments in three vertical markets (transportation, electronics & energy, and agriculture), while monetizing businesses with below-target long-term potential. The recent sale of Consumer Products and the potential sale of AgroSolution (presently undervalued) continue the company's trend toward a more focused business portfolio. Potential net proceeds of $1.2B will be used for debt reduction, share repurchasing, investments in the remaining operations, and potential bolt-on acquisitions. The remaining operations, Industrial Performance Products (petroleum additives and urethanes) and Industrial Engineered Products (bromine & flame retardants and organometallics), are expected to grow revenues via innovations, share gain, and geographic expansion, while bottom line will benefit from internal actions. In addition, market demand for flame retardants used in electronics and insulation foam applications should improve. We estimate that the "New Chemtura" (exclusive of Consumer and Ag) will generate EPS of $1.50 and $1.75 in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Traded in other countries:XCKA.Germany
Chemtura Corporation is incorporated in Delaware. It is the successor to Crompton & Knowles Corporation, which was incorporated in Massachusetts in 1900. The Company manufactures and markets a number of polymer and specialty chemical products. Its businesses are grouped into five reporting segments: Polymer Additives, Performance Specialties, Consumer Products, Crop Protection and Other. Polymer additives are chemical additives designed to improve the performance of polymers in their end-use applications. Segment products include antioxidants, brominated performance products, flame retardants, fumigants, polymerization additives and intermediates, PVC additives and surfactants. Performance Specialties are engineered chemical solutions. Performance Specialties include petroleum additives that provide detergency, friction modification and corrosion protection in motor oils, greases, refrigeration and turbine lubricants; castable urethane prepolymers engineered to provide superior abrasion resistance and durability in many industrial and recreational applications; and polyurethane dispersions and urethane prepolymers used in various types of coatings such as clear floor finishes, high-gloss paints and textiles treatments. Consumer Products are performance chemicals that are sold to consumers for in-home and outdoor use. Consumer Products include recreational water purification products sold under a number of branded labels through local dealers and large retailers to assist consumers in the maintenance of their pools and spas and branded cleaners and degreasers sold mainly through mass merchants to consumers for home cleaning. Crop Protection business focuses on specific target markets in six major product lines: seed treatments, fungicides, miticides, insecticides, growth regulants and herbicides. The Other segment consists of the Company's non-core businesses. In 2008, this category included industrial water additives and rubber chemicals. The majority of the Company's products are sold to industrial customers for use as additives, ingredients or intermediates that impart particular characteristics to the customers' end products. Its consumer products are sold through local dealers, large retailers and mass merchants. The Company has approximately 3,400 United States and foreign granted patents and pending patent applications and have approximately 4,900 United States and foreign registered and pending trademarks in more than 100 countries. Hydrocarbon-based and inorganic chemicals constitute the majority of the raw materials required to manufacture its products. These materials are generally available from a number of sources, some of which are foreign. The Company faces competition in many of its markets. Some of its existing competitors are larger than it is and might have more resources and better access to capital markets for continued expansion or new product development than it does. Chemical companies are subject to enviro
