Potash upgraded on merger at RBC Capital

As noted on Friday, RBC Capital upgraded Potash (POT) to Outperform from Sector Perform. RBC Capital analyst Andrew Wong says that the estimated synergies of the Agrium (AGU)/Potash merger are "compelling." Wong calls the synergies "ambitious but achievable," and adds that the strategic benefits of the deal are "just as important as synergies." He thinks that the benefits of the deal "outweigh potential risks related to changing potash exposure." Target to $19 from $15.

The firm, which also has a Positive rating for Agrium shares, raised its price target on Potash to $21 from $16 increased its price target on Agrium to $116 from $109.

Agrium downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson downgraded Agrium (AGU) as he expects the stock to "trade sideways" until the company's merger with Potash (POT) is approved. Jackson also cited valuation as a reason for the downgrade, and he notes that Agrium did not receive a premium in the deal. Target $95.

Potash upgraded on merger at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded Potash (POT) to Buy from Hold. Analyst Paul Forward upgraded the shares after the company announced that it was merging with Agrium (AGU). The merger will benefit Potash shareholders by "providing (them) shelter from a difficult nutrient price environment and access to growth in the form of Agrium's retail exposure," the analyst stated. He set a $20 price target on Potash.
