Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Celanese built out its core acetic acid production facilities at a significantly lower capital cost per ton than its competitors thanks to the scale of its facilities (2 million tons versus average 0.5 million tons).

Bears

Celanese's acetyl chain business will face long-term margin pressure from a more narrow spread between Brent oil and US natural gas.
