FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX) - Brenntag's share price is set for a significant slide on Tuesday morning. The shares of the chemicals trader sank to their lowest Xetra level since November at 73.04 euros on the Tradegate trading platform, losing a good 6 percent compared to the Xetra close.

Analyst Suhasini Varanasi from Goldman Sachs saw the same weak trends at the start of the year for the eaters as for their industry colleagues IMCD and Azelis. The outlook, which has been shifted to the lower end of the target range, implies a consensus correction of four percent. Expert Chetan Udeshi from JPMorgan still finds the new targets optimistic./ag/jha/
