What are Wall Street analysts saying about CF Industries stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CF Industries stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CF Industries’ earnings or the first quarter matched the Zacks Consensus Estimate while sales beat. The company is well placed to benefit from higher nitrogen demand in major markets. Demand for nitrogen is expected to be strong in North America, driven by healthy corn acres in the United States.  Increased planted corn acres is also likely to drive demand in Brazil. CF Industries is also seeing a rebound in industrial demand from the pandemic-led disruptions. Higher nitrogen prices will lend support to its bottom line. It remains committed to reduce debt and boost shareholders’ value. It has also outperformed the industry over a year. However, higher natural gas costs are expected to weigh on the company’s margins.  Ammonia production is also expected to remain under pressure. The company also faces logistics challenges." (5/18/2022)
  • 2. The analyst cites the company's disclosure that its Q4 is tracking better thanks to the strong global nitrogen market conditions. Jackson adds that even assuming a moderation from record prices, CF still seems to be pace for free cash flow well in excess of $10 per share, which should accelerate buybacks and provide more dry powder for investments.
