Morningstar | Chemicals Bellwether BASF Slashes 2019 EBIT Guidance; Shares Slightly Undervalued

After the market closed on July 8 narrow-moat BASF released a profit warning, stating 2019 EBIT is now expected to be up to 30% below the prior-year level, compared with previous guidance for an increase in the range of 1%-10%. This is well below consensus and our expectations for EBIT growth to be flat to slightly down.

We agree with the market assessment and are lowering our fair value estimate to EUR 70 ($19.5) from EUR 74 ($21), which leaves the shares on the cusp of four-st...

Chemicals Bellwether BASF Slashes 2019 EBIT Guidance; Shares Slightly Undervalued

Narrow-moat BASF reported first-quarter EBIT of EUR 1.7 billion, down 24% over the year-ago period, which was broadly in line with expectations. Volumes were down 4% for the group given generally subdued market sentiment, which led to cautious ordering by customers, particularly in the automotive sector. Chemicals and materials led the charge downward because of the current current oversupplied markets in isocyanates and cracker products. 2019 guidance was maintained for a slight increase in EBI...

Morningstar | BASF Profits Down As Expected in 1Q; Shares Fairly Valued

Narrow-moat BASF reported first-quarter EBIT of EUR 1.7 billion, down 24% over the year-ago period, which was broadly in line with expectations.

We don’t expect to make a material change to our forecast or EUR 74 fair value estimate. At curre...
