What are Wall Street analysts saying about Mosaic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mosaic stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Earnings estimates for Mosaic for the second quarter of 2020 have been stable over the past month. The company is likely to gain from higher demand for fertilizers. Demand for phosphate and potash in North America is expected to be strong in the 2020 after three consecutive seasons of under-application of fertilizers. The Brazil-based Vale Fertilizantes acquisition is also expected to deliver significant synergies. The company should also benefit from cost-reduction initiatives and capacity expansion. However, the company faces challenges from lower phosphate demand in China. The coronavirus outbreak is impacting fertilizer demand in China. Margins in the Phosphates segment are also under pressure amid lower prices. Moreover, the company has underperformed the industry it belongs to in the past year." (7/7/2020)
  • 2. Cfra analysts commented, "We see revenues falling 1.9% in 2019 and rising 5.08% in 2020 versus a 29.4% jump in 2018. We see higher prices and volumes for potash in 2019, but see sales challenges from the failed tailings dam in Fertilizantes and poor weather delaying or canceling some North American phosphate applications. Prices should be helped by a more favorable supply and demand environment for MOS’s products in 2020 and we see higher volumes as well." (9/9/2019)
