KeyBanc initiates coverage on Huntsman (NYSE: HUN) with a Buy. PT $20.00.

KeyBanc analyst said, "At today's current valuation, we still see the risk-reward profile as attractive despite the recent share appreciation. The Company should benefit from positive secular trends in its Polyurethanes (insulation), Performance
Products (amines, surfactants and emerging markets), and Advanced Materials
(composites) business segments. In addition to generally positive global
demand trends in its core businesses, the increasing value-add characteristics
of its products and growth downstream, such as system houses, should help the
Company improve overall profitability in the above mentioned segments over the
coming years."

Although the KeyBanc analyst said everything isn't going to be quite so rosy, with a partial offset coming from a slowdown in the Pigment segment. The Textiles segment should also remain challenging.
