StockCall Study on E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., Dow Chemical, Huntsman, and Air Products & Chemicals

April 15, 2013

LONDON, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Chemical industry faced significant challenges in 2012 as a slowdown in the global
economy hurt demand for chemical products. The fiscal cliff issue in the U.S. also created
a great deal of uncertainty. Notwithstanding the disappointing economic data released on
Friday, the U.S. economy has shown signs of improvement since the start of this year.
Recent economic data from China has also been encouraging. These developments augur well
for chemical companies such as E.I. Du Pont Nemours and Co. (NYSE: DD), The Dow Chemical
Company (NYSE: DOW), Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN), and Air Products & Chemicals Inc.
(NYSE: APD). On Friday, shares of all four companies slipped, tracking losses in the broad
market, which fell after investors digested some poor U.S. economic data. StockCall free
