What are Wall Street analysts saying about CF Industries stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CF Industries stock:
  • 1. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We think this dynamic is well understood by the market with Nutrien providing similar commentary with its results last week. Over the course of 2019, CF remains constructive on the nitrogen market due to: a) incremental net global nitrogen capacity will grow below the historical nitrogen demand growth rate b) part of that new capacity (1.2MMT) may be delayed due to U. S. sanctions on Iran, c) Chinese exports remaining in the 2-3MMT range (~2.4MMT in 2018) and d) solid demand from India and Brazil. CF expects ~12MMT of urea imports between these two countries in 2019, which would be at a similar volume level to 2018. We think average realized pricing could be softer in the back half of 2019, especially 3Q y/y, than consensus has modeled. CF announced a new $1B share repurchase program through 2021." (2/15/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CF Industries is well placed to benefit from higher nitrogen demand in major markets. Higher nitrogen prices are also likely to continue supporting its sales and margins. Further, the company is expected to gain from its efforts to boost production capacity. Moreover, it is enjoying the benefits of ample natural gas supply. However, higher number of plant turnarounds may hurt its production volume. CF Industries also has a debt-laden balance sheet. Moreover, it is exposed to challenging agriculture market fundamentals. CF Industries has also underperformed the industry it belongs to over the past three months." (1/11/2019)
