The article focuses on the plan of Hunstman to create a differentiated chemical company that is driven by technology and research and development (R&D). However, investors are not giving credit to those differentiated companies. But they also have not validated Huntsman's strategy, either. Companies with steadier profits and cash flows should eventually garner investor interest.
