Huntsman Corporation Formulates Success

Every New York stock exchange trading day I'm posting a daily dividend stock or fund review. I'll share the three chief qualities of just one equity or fund that could be selected for a dividend stock portfolio I've named the Safari to Sweet Success.

This week the portfolio I'm building (my Safari To Sweet Success portfolio) seeks a high-yield and growing stock in the basic materials sector. 

That basic sector includes thirteen industries all related to mining, making and delivering essential commodities. The industries are: agricultural inputs; aluminum; building materials; chemicals; coal; copper; industrial metals and minerals; paper; silver; specialty chemicals; steel.

Today I'm reviewing a mid-cap chemicals company. The company's name is Huntsman Corporation. Its trading ticker symbol is HUN.  

Huntsman Corp acts as a manufacturer of differentiated organic chemical products and of inorganic chemical products. Its products mainly comprise a broad range of chemicals and formulations which are used in various applications.

The company operates in four segments: Polyurethanes, Performance Products, Advanced Materials, and Textile Effects. 

The Polyurethanes segment offers polyurethane chemicals, thermoplastic polyurethane, propylene oxide, and methyl tertiary-butyl ether products. 

The Performance Products segment manufactures amines, maleic anhydrides, surfactants, linear alkyl-benzene, ethylene glycol, ethylene oxide, olefins, and technology licenses. 

The Advanced Materials segment offers epoxy, acrylic, and polyurethane-based polymers formulations; high-performance thermoset resins and curing agents; and base liquid and solid resins.

The Textile Effects segment provides textile chemicals, dyes, and inks. The company's products are used in various applications, including adhesives, aerospace, automotive, construction products, personal care and hygiene, durable and non-durable consumer products.
