What are analysts saying about FMC Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FMC Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "FMC Corp.’s adjusted earnings and sales for first-quarter 2017 missed the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. The company cut its earnings outlook for 2017. FMC Corp. has outperformed the Zacks categorized Chemicals-Diversified industry over a year. FMC Corp. should gain from its efforts to expand product portfolio. The company is also seeing strong demand in its Lithium unit and is expanding production capacity to meet growing demand for electric vehicles. Moreover, FMC Corp. will benefit from the cost synergies of the Cheminova buyout. The proposed acquisition of a major portion of DuPont's Crop Protection business has also provided a significant growth platform for the company's Agricultural Solutions unit. However, agricultural market conditions remain challenging in North America. Global crop protection markets also remain weak. FMC Corp. is also exposed to currency headwinds. The company’s stretched valuation is another concern." (5/8/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "The ag market remains uneven with a rebound in Latin America and Asia needed to offset weather-related weakness in Europe and inventory destocking issues in North America. Lithium pricing remains strong and an increase in production will buoy growth through 2020E. The products purchased from DuPont (DD, Buy) are projected to add between $1.09-$1.41 to 2018E EPS. Including H&N, Q1 EPS was $0.08 above consensus and $0.07 above our forecast: The H&N segment was moved to discontinued ops in preparation for the sale to DuPont. +$0.09 in Ag; in-line in Lithium; +$0.01 in Corporate. Ag sales fell 3% YoY (-3% volume, flat FX, flat price), and Lithium sales rose 9% (-10% volumes, -1% FX, +20% price)." (5/5/2017)
  • 3. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "FMC is a quality specialty chemical company which produces agricultural, health and nutrition, and lithium products. Although we like the business and recent execution, we are looking for additional clarity around 2017, which is expected to be back-half loaded. Additionally, while FMC has one of the better lithium businesses in the market, Lithium represents a small piece of FMC's business. We would look to become more constructive on pullbacks noting FMC is a leader in Agricultural Solutions." (3/22/2017)
