Many specialty chemicals spent the last six months going nowhere fast, OM Group (NYSE:OMG) included. I've been watching this one, wondering if there might be a chance to get shares before the business started to improve on better demand in Europe.

Considering the combination of recovering markets and a clean balance sheet with which to make accretive acquisitions, I like OM Group at these levels.
