According to Zacks Investment Research, "Potash Corp.’s earnings and sales for fourth-quarter 2016 missed the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. Potash Corp. has underperformed the Zacks categorized Fertilizers industry over a year. The company remains exposed to a weak pricing environment. Weak potash and nitrogen prices are expected to continue to hurt the company's results moving ahead. Potash Corp. also faces challenging agriculture market fundamentals and headwinds associated with weakness across specific consumer markets including Brazil. Moreover, soft agricultural commodity prices continue to affect the fertilizer industry. However, Potash Corp. will benefit from expanded operational capability and improved demand for potash. The proposed merger with Agrium is also expected to create significant cost and operational synergies." (2/15/2017)
Paradigm Capital analysts commented, "the fundamental backdrop has not improved and [he believes] could remain challenged through the year barring a material recovery in grain prices."Related Link: Potash Oversupply Makes Investments Uncertain In Short Term, Morgan Stanley SaysChurchill, who has a price target of $13.50 on Potash Corporation, noted that potash prices remain depressed in an oversupplied market, and he does not foresee a material rebound even following completed contract negotiations and volume upticks."Gauges of farmer spending and confidence are at, or near, all‐time lows, and U.S. farm net income is expected to drop another 3 percent in 2016. Hence, Potash's view of flat global potash shipments in 2016 could be too optimistic if farmers choose to cut back on new purchases and 'mine' the soil this year," (3/22/2016)
