Recently I searched the CCC list and Westlake Chemical Corp. (NYSE:WLK) popped up on one of my screens. My own, self-made Excel application directly lists all the competitors in the particular industry (Chemical-Specialty), ranked by market cap. Praxair (NYSE:PX), an industrial gases company, was the biggest with a market cap of $38 billion, yet somehow I never heard of the company. However, just by looking at the company overview, I could see that this company could be a potential add-on to my dividend growth portfolio.
There has only been one in-depth article on Seeking Alpha last year about this industry leader. So I decided to do a write-up of the company. Check out my new article on Seeking Alpha and let me know what you think.
