Chemours reported strong earnings for two quarters. Chemours’ outlook appears to be positive. The demand for Opteon refrigerants is expected to be strong due to regulatory changes in Europe and the US. Chemours expects higher volume growth for its titanium-dioxide due to a possibly higher price. In its 2Q17 earnings, Chemours revised its EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) to $1.30 billion–$1.40 billion from the earlier guidance of $1.15 billion–$1.25 billion. All of these positive factors helped the stock price rise.
