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

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Q4 EPS of $0.88 was in line with consensus and $0.03 above our estimate. North American agrichemical demand will likely remain soft, but better lithium pricing and new agrichemical products lead to $3.20-$3.60 in 2017E (vs. consensus $3.32)." (2/7/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "FMC Corp. swung to a profit in third-quarter 2016. Its adjusted earnings topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Revenues fell year over year on lower sales across agriculture and health & nutrition businesses, and matched expectations.  FMC Corp. should gain from its strategic investments and new product launches. Moreover, it will benefit from the cost synergies of the Cheminova buyout. The company is also seeing strong demand in its Lithium unit. However, FMC Corp. remains exposed to currency headwinds. Moreover, global crop protection markets remain weak, especially in Brazil. Agricultural market conditions are also expected to remain challenging in North America in 2016. The company also faces certain operational challenges in Argentina." (11/4/2016)
