    Chemtura (CHMT -10.5%) shares plunge after the maker of specialty chemicals is downgraded at Oppenheimer, which says Q4 results showed CHMT may be approaching the limits to further margin improvement without a healthier economy. Also, legacy overhead costs from its antioxidants sale will hamper margins, and 2013 capex needs are higher than expected.

    Chemtura (CHMT +5.3%) shares surge after Oppenheimer upgrades its rating on the maker of additives for plastics to Outperform, "as its long restructuring post-bankruptcy takes hold, Q4's margin expansion looks to have legs, and the rebound in electronics flame retardants, its most profitable segment, is faster than expected."
