Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

LyondellBasell benefits from its cost-advantaged North American operations that use low-cost natural gas-based feedstock.

Bears

Half of LyondellBasell’s operations are outside of North America and are subject to higher and more volatile costs, which will weigh on profits.
