What are analysts saying about Intrepid Potash stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Intrepid Potash stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "INTREPID POTASH, Inc. is the largest producer of potash in the U.S. and is dedicated to the production and marketing of potash and langbeinite, another mineral containing potassium. Intrepid owns five active potash production facilities -- three in New Mexico and two in Utah " (8/9/2017)
  • 2. UBS AG analysts commented, "Over the last 3 months the stock is up 75%. This reflects investor enthusiasm around tax reforms (100% US based production) and significant operating leverage (bottoming potash price) and financial leverage ('17E net debt/EBITDA of ~4.5x). IPI is a small U.S.- focused producer of potash fertilizer, which recently renegotiated its debt & covenants to avoid a liquidity crisis. During 4Q, customers appear to have begun restocking inventory industrywide (given pricing had bottomed) in advance of seasonal application. In addition, since the election, U.S. focused small cap stocks have been among the best performing asset classes (partly in anticipation of tax reform), and commodities have rallied over the past three months (led by the recovery in oil & Asian coal prices). While ag. may have bottomed, timing of recovery dependent on weather/pests We view the recent ag rally as more a "bounce off the bottom" rather than the beginning of a sustained recovery."
