In the first half of 2019, the MDI market price rose first and then fell. In the first quarter, the impact of the resumption of downstream operations and the replenishment of stocks gradually rebounded the MDI price. The aggregate MDI East China price rebounded from 1,1,500 yuan / ton to 17,900 yuan / ton.
In the second quarter, due to the weak real demand for downstream real estate and home appliances, coupled with the uncertainty of demand from customers and dealers due to the Sino-US trade war, they did not dare to accumulate inventory, and MDI prices began to decrease significantly.
The aggregate MDI East China price dropped from 17,900 yuan / ton at the beginning of the second quarter to 12,450 yuan / ton at the end of the second quarter.
In Q2 2019, the average price of East China MDI rose 8% from the previous month.
91%, down 28 each year.
42%; the average price of pure MDI decreased by 1 from the previous month.
68%, a decline of 25 per year.
Due to the lag effect of the ratio of the company’s MDI contract listing price to the market price, the company’s MDI contract listing price and Q1 in the second quarter of 2019 have generally increased: from April to June, the aggregate MDI prices were adjusted to 17,800, 19,000, and 14,500 yuan / ton, respectively.; Pure MDI prices were adjusted to 26200, 27200 and 23700 yuan / ton respectively.
The MDI industry in the next three years will be in a situation of supply and demand balance. At present, MDI prices are at historically low levels and it is expected that there will be less room for continued decline.
In the short term, September in the third quarter is the traditional peak season, and the fourth quarter is the typical impulse season in the refrigerator industry, which is expected to support the rebound in MDI prices.
In the long run, major global suppliers will be cautious about the scale of MDI’s supplementary production capacity and supply growth indicators.
Moreover, the old production capacity of more than 15 years in the world accounts for nearly 50%, and replacement maintenance will also reduce the operating rate. The global MDI operating rates in 2019-2021 are expected to be 74%, 76%, and 75%, respectively, compared with 2015-2018.decline.
We believe the MDI industry will remain balanced in the next three years.

2%), the unit price is 5238 yuan / ton (+4 chain.
Our judgment is related to the adjustment of Wanhua’s product structure and the maintenance of PDH equipment in the second quarter.

3%), the unit price is 17,947 yuan / ton (-5 ring.
Although the company’s MMA / PMMA unit was overhauled in the second quarter, the company’s sales are still increasing rapidly.
The price growth rate from the previous month is related to the continued decline in the prices of some products (such as PCs) in Wanhua in the second quarter.
A large number of supplementary projects continue to empower Wanhua’s high-end industrial chain. Some of the projects under construction include: polyurethane industry chain extension and supporting projects (budget 17.5 billion, 65% completed), ethylene projects (17.5 billion), and US integration projects (86Billion), BC series projects (2.7 billion), thermal power phase II projects (1.4 billion), etc.
According to the EIA announcement, other proposed projects include: 4 nylon 12 project (25.
500 million), $ 50 / year polyether polyol expansion project (9.
1.7 billion), synthetic fragrance integration project (5.
7.6 billion), 4000 tons of propylene diamine series product construction project (3.
19 ppm), 3 thermoplastic thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer expansion project (1.
5.5 billion) and so on.
The expansion of overall production capacity will help the company to further consolidate the size of the industry leader, increase market share and product bargaining power; and the layout of the new product line will help form a complementary development with the existing industry chain, extend the industry chain, and increase product additionValue and resilience.
Investment rating and estimation Our founder chemical uses the cycle probability method to predict that the company’s net profit per ton of MDI in the next three years will have an 80% probability of remaining above RMB 3,454 / ton, corresponding to the net profit of MDI business in Wanhua China in 2019-2021.The 80% probability remains at 5, 3, 4, 7 billion yuan.
We expect the company’s net profit attributable to its parent to be 122 in 2019-2021.
2.5 billion, with EPS of 3.
45, corresponding to PE is 11, 9, 8 respectively, maintaining the “strongly recommended” level.
Risks remind the company of risks: the acquisition progress is less than expected, the MDI price fluctuates sharply, and the project production progress is less than expected; the merger and acquisition project has a profit and loss commitment; and the oil price changes.
