From the IPO Space...

Specialty chemical maker Neogen Chemicals is all set for its initial public offer (IPO), which opens today. This would be the fourth company coming out with a public issue in the financial year 2019-20.

Neogen Chemicals is one of India's leading manufacturers of bromine-based, and lithium-based, specialty chemicals.

Company manufactures specialty organic bromine-based chemical compounds (Bromine Compounds) and other specialty organic chemical compounds as well as specialty inorganic lithium-based chemicals compounds (Lithium Compounds and together with the Bromine Compounds the Products).

Company had commenced the business operations in 1991, at Mahape, Navi Mumbai manufacturing facility with a few Bromine Compounds and Lithium Compounds.

Speaking of IPOs, we at Equitymaster believe a merit-based selection, primarily including valuation, business, and management quality, is the logical way to go about investing in IPOs.

If it means going against the herd, so be it. And going by recent past, this strategy has been proven to be successful more often.

Rising Oil Prices

On Tuesday, oil prices hit their highest since November after Washington announced all waivers on imports of sanctions-hit Iranian oil would end next week, pressuring importers to stop buying from Tehran and further tightening global supply.

The United States on Monday demanded that buyers of Iranian oil stop purchase by May 1 or face sanctions, ending six months of waivers which allowed Iran's eight biggest buyers.

Before the imposition of sanctions last year, Iran was the fourth-largest producer among the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries at around 3 million barrels per day (bpd), but April exports have shrunk to below 1 million bpd.

Saudi Arabia is the world's top oil exporter and de facto leader of OPEC, which has led global supply cuts since the start of the year aimed at propping up crude prices.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other producers including Russia, an alliance known as OPEC+, have been cutting output since January 1. They will decide in June whether to continue the arrangement.

On the demand-side, there is concern that an economic slowdown as well as improving energy efficiency and the emergence of alternative transport fuels will erode oil consumption.
