I am trying to understand the relationship of Ashland and Valvoline or lack there of? From what I can figure Ash has split from Valvoline is this correct? Anyone know why? Also did Ashland own Valvoline in total? And was it from the beginning of Valvoline as a company?

I tried to google search this but could not quite find what I was looking for.

In May 2017, Ashland successfully separated its Valvoline business, the final step of reorganizing itself as a global specialty chemicals company.

Ashland wanted to concentrate on chemicals so they spun off Valvoline. Keeping it simple is a good way to go while everyone else is going the opposite direction.

Get a job in plastics. The future is in plastics.

So who owns Valvoline? Are they now self owned? I see they are trading on NYSE as VVV.

If they are fully separated from Ashland, I may remove them from my ban list.

What Ashland did with Valvoline is similar to what Conoco Phillips did with its refining business a few years ago. One difference is that Phillips 66 continues to make lubrication and chemical products, while I believe Valvoline sticks with refinery related products. If the pattern follows, there could be money to be made with Valvoline. Phillips 66 (PSX) has more than tripled in price since its spin off. I wish I'd held the stock longer before I cashed in.

Wonder if anything changes in base stock supply for Valvoline?

Ashland has a large office complex in Dublin, Ohio along I-270. Ashland lost money last year.

And they probably didn't strap the kayaks to bicycles or walk them there to get them to the protest.
They just don't want oil rigs so close to them, thats all. Near somebody else is fine, just not near them. Can't have that.
