Unid Stock Price, OCI Collateral, Chemical Stock, MDF, Carbon Neutral Stock
It's a company that's unfamiliar to the general public to deal with the basic chemical sector, but if you look at its business area and internal stability, it's a company worth even Warren Buffett covet Founded in 1992 with the aim of localizing potassium-based products that relied on imports, UNI began expanding its operations by acquiring MDF division of CHARGING PRODUCT. The Union's business, which consists largely of chemical units and board units, is mainly profitable from chemicals such as caustic potassium, liquid chlorine, and potassium carbonate, producing chemicals at domestic and foreign production bases and selling products to global industries. UNID has a market capitalization of less than 1 trillion won and remains in the top 200 in terms of KOSPI market capitalization rankings, but it makes more than 160 billion won in operating profit on sales of more than 1 trillion won every year. Sales have grown steadily since 2016, and operating profit has continued to improve gradually except in 2017, but it has not been widely known for a long time, but it has often risen and fallen among investors as undervalued stocks compared to corporate value. The growth and demand of forward industries have made inorganic chemicals, which have not been noticed before, a golden egg, and the rising price of chlorine and the solid demand of MDF, which is used as a material for the construction, interior and furniture markets, seem to boost the value of the unit. UNID started its third-generation management to succeed the company, and Lee Woo-il, the next-generation head of the company, who is influential in the overall business, is very willing to enter the new business, so the entry into the new business is expected to be visible. Executive director Lee Woo-il is expected to narrow the new business into secondary battery-related fields, such as investing in secondary battery company Rivest and liquid hydrogen company HiLium Industry.
Solid carbon capture technology in the spotlight
For UNID, the green trend that has become a hot topic of conversation will be an area of opportunity that must never be missed. The most important environmental challenges in ESG management have become a prerequisite for the continued prosperity of mankind, and companies that cause environmental problems will be completely shunned by investors and will be left out of the market. With this stance, the UNIT, which runs the basic inorganic chemical business, has a great opportunity to take advantage of the huge trend of expanding the carbon capture market, which is called an unknown gold mine with a potential of more than 20 times over the next decade. In order to reduce 2030 carbon and further achieve 2050 carbon neutrality, carbon collection technology is no longer an option but a necessity, along with expanding renewable energy. UNID Stock Growth ========= Calium carbonate is a raw material used for carbon capture and is considered an important material for producing clean hydrogen. When trying to extract hydrogen from natural gas, carbon inevitably occurs, and studies show that potassium carbonate plays an important role in catching the carbon generated at this time. As the demand for potassium carbonate, which has emerged as a key material for carbon collection, is rapidly expanding 90,000 tons a year in China by the end of 2022. If the additional expansion is completed and an economy of scale is realized, the price competitiveness of the unit is expected to be maximized. Related industries predict that it will be easier for the carbon collection industry to make profits than competitive renewable energy or secondary batteries. Even for governments that are leading the way for carbon neutrality, companies like Unid are in dire need. The government has decided to focus on five tasks, including the transition of carbon neutrality, and the nation's only unit that manufactures potassium products, such as caustic potassium and potassium carbonate, is expected to expand its carbon capture capabilities in line with the government's transition to the carbon neutral industry. Although it is not a popular company widely known to many investors, I think it is more valuable and meaningful. I think the return on investment comes from the nature of the business of the company rather than the brand name. We will continue to observe the small but fruitful unit that holds stable revenue sources and future revenue sources.
