Polymer manufacturer PolyOne reported a second-quarter income of $45.7 million, compared with last year's $1.9 million loss. The company's gains were fueled by higher prices for its products, even as the weak euro affected sales. PolyOne's earnings may also be a result of its diversification efforts, said PolyOne CEO Stephen Newlin, as the company during the past few years has engaged in less "cyclical" markets including health care and packaging.
