Why Albemarle May Be The Catalyst Your Portfolio Needs

I'd like to share with you my thoughts on a company that has a history dating back to 1887. It employs over 4,000 people across the globe and operates in 100 countries worldwide including major emerging market economies. This company's innovations are seen in everyday applications such as protecting farmers' crops, creating cleaner transportation fuels, providing the active ingredients in pharmaceuticals, and reducing mercury emissions. Its products and services create meaningful value for customers by improving product performance, providing essential product attributes, lowering costs and simplifying processes. Management has raised the dividend for 19 straight years, including a 20% increase for 2013, and recently announced an aggressive plan to repurchase 10% of outstanding shares over the next year.
