6 Stocks, 3 Mergers, and 1 Unhappy Activist

Dow Chemical Co (NYSE:DOW) and E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co (NYSE:DD) are in the news again after the Wall Street Journal published an article stating that Dan Loeb of Third Point wants Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris removed. Although he supports Dow Chemical Co (NYSE:DOW)’s merger with E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co (NYSE:DD), Loeb wonders if the deal was rushed to prevent him from publicly speaking about Dow. Loeb and Dow had an agreement that basically gagged Loeb until last weekend. If Loeb were allowed to speak, he may have gotten Dow Chemical shareholders more of the pie. If Liveris isn’t removed, he will be Chairman of the combined company that will have revenue in excess of $90 billion a year. Shares of Dow and Dupont are each down by about 4.5% this morning.
