06:04 EDTAKS, DOW, MT, NUE, XCheap gas energizing parts of U.S. economy, WSJ reports
With natural gas suddenly plentiful and relatively cheap in the U.S. due to hydraulic fracturing technology, or fracking, U.S. manufacturing is beginning to pick up again, reports the Wall Street Journal. For example, back in 2004, steelmaker Nucor Corp. (NUE) bought a plant next to Louisiana wetlands, took it apart and shipped it to Trinidad on ocean barges because gas is cheap there.This summer, after almost two years of construction, it will open the same type of plant at the same site at a cost of $750M because natural gas, which is critical to these Nucor plants, is cheap here. Lower-priced natural gas has energized many parts of the country and the economy, including chemical and fertilizer companies, which say lower prices have reduced costs and made the U.S. a more competitive manufacturing location.

12:39 EDTDOWHuntsman plunges after warning of continued headwinds
Shares of chemical maker Huntsman (HUN) are plunging after warning that headwinds would impact its third quarter earnings. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Friday, Huntsman warned that certain trends are expected to impact Q3 earnings. Trends expected to impact its earnings include lower titanium dioxide selling prices amid continued foreign currency headwinds, the company said. The company also noted continued soft demand in the Asia Pacific region. Huntsman said it also sees lower MTBE, or methyl tertiary butyl ether, margins as a result of lower oil prices and forecast continued lower MDI urethane component product margins in the Asia Pacific region. Peter Huntsman, the company's chief executive officer, said the company is "optimistic about the future" despite seeing headwinds in the short term. "Lower raw material prices impacted demand and margins in Q3, thus the accounting benefits will be delayed into the fourth quarter," added Huntsman. The company is anticipating fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA similar to Q3 at about $300M, similar to last year's level. The company is committed to a separation of the Pigments and Additives business by the end of 2016 or sooner. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 17, Goldman Sachs removed Huntsman from its Conviction Buy List and said investors remain skeptical on value proposition and free cash flow generation that could strengthen the balance sheet is likely several quarters away. The firm continued to rate shares a Buy with a $26 price target. PRICE ACTION: In midday trading, shares of Huntsman are down 23.08% to $10.70. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other chemical companies are trading lower, including Chemours (CC), which is down 7.8%, Kronos Worldwide (KRO), down 1.62%, Dow Chemical (DOW), falling 3.94% and DuPont (DD), down 2.06%%.
