Guru Investment Theses on Methanex Corp

Bernard Horn Comments on Methanex - Mar 16, 2015

By contrast, Methanex (MEOH) has been hampered by natural gas supply constraints, causing reduced production at one Trinidad plant and restricted activity in Chile and Egypt. Lower commodity prices have also been at issue, both with methanol at Methanex and iron ore and oil at Australia’s BHP Billiton.
