DowDuPont continues its long metamorphosis from two diversified chemical giants into three more focused businesses. Dow and DuPont closed their long-planned merger in August 2017, creating the world’s largest chemical company. The next step is to rearrange the pieces into independent, publicly traded companies in agriculture (seeds and crop protection), materials science (plastics and other high-tech materials), and specialty products (nutrition, bioscience, electronics materials). The goal is to complete the transformation in the first half of 2019. Wall Street mostly likes what it sees; analysts are bullish.
