Summary

  • Lanxess is a German company in the chemical sector.
  • The stock is cheap from a fundamental perspective, but all peers are cheap.
  • The share price (and option premiums) seems to be including a worldwide economic slowdown.
  • That's possible and even likely, but perhaps this is already incorporated in the share price.
  • Meanwhile, Lanxess' debt repayments are well spread out in time, and after this year, no bond repayments are scheduled before 2025.

As I'm a long-term investor, I'll highlight some stockpicks which will have a 5-7 year investment horizon. As I strongly believe a portfolio should consist of a mixture of dividend-paying stocks and growth stocks, my articles will reflect my thoughts on this mixture.

I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
