What are Wall Street analysts saying about Mosaic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mosaic stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Mosaic saw its profits surge year over year in the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted earnings and sales for the quarter topped the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. The company cut its guidance for 2019. Sizable costs associated with regulatory changes in Brazil are expected to weigh on its earnings in 2019. Mosaic also faces challenges from lower expected phosphate demand in China in 2019. The company’s high debt level is another matter of concern. Higher raw material costs are also hurting phosphate margins. Mosaic has also underperformed the industry over a year." (5/20/2019)
