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.

One bright spot in the sector was Methanex (MEOH), which was the third largest individual contributor to overall performance this quarter. Methanex saw its stock price rebound from June quarter lows, while simultaneously benefitting from stabilizing methanol prices.
