Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Chemical investment caution suggested By WENDY ROSEN The Canadian Press Canadian Business Service of Toronto says that although the peak years for chemical stocks in terms of share prices and earnings are yet to Consortium discussion TORONTO Union Carbide Canada Ltd. of Toronto had some dis- with a consortium led by Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd. of Calgary that hopes to build a petrochemical plant in J.H. Union Carbide vice-president said this week Mr. Field said in an inter- view that Union Carbide not one of the active in the so-called Alpec project. Union Carbide told the Al- berta Energy Resources Con- servation Board last month that it is prepared to commit itself to building plants in Alberta to consume 400 million pounds of ethylene a year to make ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol. Mr. Field said that a Union Carbide commitment in Alberta reduce Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed's opposition to the Petrosar Ltd. petrochemical project at Sarnia. Union Carbide has a 20-per- cent interest in he said. Any part of 5 acres located at 2nd Ave. and 9th Street N. Lethbridge. TOLLESTRUP CONSTRUCTION CO. Telephone 328-8196 no new commitments should be made at present. The investment service says in a recent market letter that could not be better for the chemical but that it expects them to get worse in the latter half of this decade as large scale expan- sion plans result in a surplus of production capacity. The current buoyant market is the flip side of the cyclical coin which plagued the in- dustry in the late. 1960s when chemical concerns were faced with a relatively small domestic heavy com- petition from low priced im- ports and an oversupply in world chemical the firm says. Irregular profits were evi- dent until the middle of 1971 when the current earnings up- surge began. Since profits for the group as a whole have almost tripled. This Canadian Business Service has gathered momentum in the past year and a booming economy has strained the in- dustry's capacity to a point where full scale production is inadequate to fill the strong and apparently growing demand. The industry has responded by planning for the expansion of capacity and plans so far formulated indicate that the Neonex selling Red Deer plant VANCOUVER James A. president and chief executive officer of Neonex International an- nounced this week that the company has entered into a preliminary agreement with B.H.

S. industry sees an opportunity for the construction of global scale plants. Canadian Business Service says this is intriguing since the four major Canadian producers are subsidiaries of foreign parents. Du Pont and Union Carbide are controlled by United States firms while Canadian In- dustries is a British sub- sidiary. The parent companies are all international in scope and in the past have shown no interest in inviting competi- tion on a global scale from their Canadian subsidiaries. the firm should not overlook the fact that the chemical industry is cyclical. The trough of the cy- cle is past but the timing of the peak remains to be deter- mined. In the chemicals and other cyclical industries have swung back and forth between shortage and surplus with supply and demand in balance for only relatively short periods. The firm says there is no reason to assume the in- dustry has broken out of this pattern. Investors with com- mitments in the industry should hold them for now but consider selling on any broad- ly based advance in stock prices later this year. 169 .Consumer. Price Index Steel price effect queried Index jumps ahead A 1.3 per cent jump in the consumer price index rose the index up to 166.7 in June from 164.6 in Statistics Canada reported this week. The-June index was 11.4 per cent higher than a year ago and the largest increase in 23 years. Winnipeg adds feed grain list TORONTO A suggestion by Algoma Steel Corp. Ltd. that its recent price increases would have no significant effect on the living costs of Canadians was questioned this week by the head of the federal steel profits inquiry. Mr. Justice Willard Estey of the Ontario Court of Appeals there anything more pervasive to the economy than the price of steel somehow evaporate as it goes on down the production Algoma president D. S. Hoi- brook said the price does not but Algoma has in- creased prices only on heavy products associated with the construction industry. Prices on used in the manufacture of consumer such as tin cans and au- have not been raised. PRICES INCREASED Between mid-May and mid- June this Algoma in- troduced price increases rang- ing between eight and 19.7 per cent on about 46 per cent of its primary products. Algoma was called before the steel-profits inquiry to ex- plain the increases. The in- quiry is also looking at recent increases by the Steel Com- pany of Canada Ltd. to determine whether there has been profiteering within the Canadian steel industry. Mr. Justice Estey. in a series of asked whether tin and aerosol cans and cranes and riveting machines are not all made of steel. H. H. Smith Ltd. Customs Broker 328-8141 COUTTS Home Office Phone 344-3822 WINNIPEG The Winnipeg Commodity Ex- change plans to expand trading by adding Canadian feed grains effective July exchange president Ronald S. Ennis has an- nounced. The exchange's board of governors has authorized trading in feed oats and barley for Thunder Bay delivery in October and and May 1975. The move follows a federal government and announce- ment in June permitting domestic grains for animal feed used in Canada to be bought and sold on the open market. The new federal policy allows the movement of feed grain without interprovincial restriction at prices deter- mined by supply and demand. Mr. Ennis said feed grain futures will offer domestic feed mills and feed lot operators a hedge or protection against future price fluctuations. Trading will be in bushel board lots and job lots Daily price fluctuations are limited to 10 cents a bushel on feed wheat and barley and eight cents on oats. For feed contract grade is No. 3 Canada western red spring with delivery privilege of No. 3 Canada utili- ty wheat at 20 cents a bushel discount. SCHWARTZ AGENCIES LTD.
