US Markets Ahead of Worst Monthly Decline

- By Omar Venerio

U.S. stocks declined on Wednesday morning with the 10-year note in a seven-year high, standing at 3.22%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.06% to 26,505, the S&P 500 index jumped 0.31% to 2,893, while the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 0.76% to 7,793.

Shares of Trinseo S.A. ( TSE ) fell more than 15% on Wednesday morning after the company said that it expects third quarter results to be below previous guidance. The net income is expected to be between $74 million and $80 million, below previous guidance by $15 million. Adjusted Ebitda is estimated to be in the range of $140 million to $146 million, below previously issued guidance by approximately $12 million.


These numbers were the consequence of higher costs for raw materials, a slowdown in the automotive industry and a weaker tire market, which negatively impacted the plastics and synthetic rubber segments.

Previously, the company issued guidance of net income between $88 million and $96 million and adjusted Ebitda in the range of $150 million to $160 million.
