Calumet Specialty Products -6.5% after Q2 results, downgrade

Calumet Specialty Products (CLMT -6.5%) is cut to Neutral with a $33 price target (from $40) at Credit Suisse after disappointing Q2 results and citing the recent narrowing of crude spreads which could provide a strong headwind to a company that has expanded fuels exposure in recent years.

CLMT increased its Q2 distribution by a half-penny vs. run-rate Q/Q distribution growth of $0.03 over the prior six quarters; the slower increase suggests a slower distribution growth outlook until late next year, when ~$60M in growth projects is scheduled for completion.

    Get paid over 9% to wait for recovery of what has been a great stock over the past few years; doesn't seem to bad at under $33. Thinking of taking a position but need to dig into the new reports first.

    I dumped about a third of this dog today. I wish I had dumped it all a couple months back when the president of the company sold some of hers.

    I already have all I can hold of CLMT, otherwise I'd be buying more on this dip. Well managed company with strategic plans and solid distributions.

    I am also thinking of taking a position in this great American stock. I am particularly impressed with its strategic desire to go international. Imagine if it could penetrate China India and Africa, surely a possible 10 bagger.

    18 months from now this price <30 will look like a bargain. Remember new refinery project in ND comes online late 2014 i think it is.
