12:04 EDTDOW, DD, ALBChemical makers Dow, Albemarle rise after reporting results
Shares of two chemical makers, Dow Chemical (DOW) and Albemarle (ALB), are advancing after both companies reported stronger than expected results. DOW RESULTS: Dow Chemical reported its fourth quarter profits and revenue that both exceeded analysts' consensus estimates. The company stated that its volume had risen 2% last quarter versus the same period a year earlier, with volumes increasing in most of its operating segments and geographic areas. Overall demand was healthy last quarter and, as a result, Dow Chemical saw its margins on hydrocarbons increase, the company stated. The chemicals maker reported that the sales of all of its units except Feedstocks and Energy rose last quarter. Dow Chemical expects its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, to rise to $10 billion in the near-term, up from $8.4 billion on an adjusted basis in 2013. Dow also increased its quarterly dividend by 15% to 37c per share and expanded its authorized share buy-back program to $4.5B from $1.5B. ALBEMARLE RESULTS: Similarly, Albemarle last night reported fourth quarter profits and revenue that surpassed analysts' consensus estimates. Moreover, the company's fiscal 2014 revenue guidance also exceeded analysts' consensus outlook. Albermarle stated that it had benefited from strong growth in its refinery catalyst and clean fuels technologies businesses. The company expects the profits from its catalyst business to increase by double digit percentage levels in 2014, and it expects its earnings from its clean fuels technologies to also rise. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dow Chemical climbed 3.7% to $44.67, while Albemarle advanced 2.3% to $64.65. Another chemicals maker, Du Pont, (DD) rose 2.85% to $61.27. Du Pont reported stronger than expected results yesterday morning and announced its own $5B share repurchase program.

13:39 EDTALBCabot price target lowered to $52 from $56 at Jefferies after SCOTUS ruling
Jefferies said that the Supreme Court objection to the EPA's Mercury Admissions and Toxic Standard likely delayed a higher pollutants standard by several years. Cabot (CBT), which produces activated carbon used to reduce mercury, will incur an impairment charge of about $450M on the news, the firm noted, while lowering its price target on the shares to $52 from $56. The news removes a source of bromine growth for Albemarle (ALB), the firm said, but it doesn't believe its estimates need to be cut in reaction, citing demand from state emission reduction laws. Jefferies has Buy ratings on Albemarle and Cabot.
