Deutsche Bank Maintains Buy On Lyondellbasell Industries, $113 PT
In a research report issued today, Deutsche Bank analyst David Begleiter maintained a Buy rating on Lyondellbasell Industries (NYSE:LYB) with a price target of $113.
Begleiter noted, “Lyondell shares fell 2% post a solid Q3 beat of $0.22, or 10%, on record O&P Americas results (EBITDA +43% YoY to $1.2B) as lower oil prices (down 1% Friday) continue to pressure the shares (down 19% over the past 5 weeks). While lower oil prices will pressure Lyondell’s US ethylene margins the impact i) will not be felt near-term as positive trends continue in Q4 (i.e. ethane is at yearly lows, ethylene pricing at yearly highs and supply/demand is tight and ii) when they do pressure margins, we believe the impact will be modest as evidenced by our lowered ‘16E from $11.00 to $10.25. With, >1/2 of earnings levered to low cost US NGLs, and valuation an attractive 10.0x ‘15E EPS.”
