Talking Earnings

9:28 AM MDT | May 27, 2011 | By VINCENT VALK


Michael Sison, managing director at KeyBanc Capital Markets, sat down with CW to discuss first-quarter earnings earlier this week. Sison was optimistic that recent strong results can continue in spite of some headwinds, including rising raw material prices and shaky demand in many developed economies. Cost-cutting measures mean profitability should be sustainable, and if the economy remains on track, the year should be a good one for chemical firms, he adds.
