USDA lowers U.S. corn production forecast

The USDA, in its latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report lowered its U.S. corn production forecast for 2016-17 by 36M from last month to 15.057 billion bushels, noting that a lower forecast for yield more than offsets an increase in harvested area. Publicly traded companies in the agriculture space include Agrium (AGU), Andersons (ANDE), Archer Daniels (ADM), Bunge (BG), CF Industries (CF), Compass Minerals (CMP), DuPont (DD), Intrepid Potash (IPI), Monsanto (MON), Mosaic (MOS), Potash (POT) and Syngenta (SYT).

RBC says Agrium, Potash merger would not solve industry issues
RBC Capital analyst Andrew Wong views a potential merger between Agrium (AGU) and Potash (POT) as beneficial to both companies, but he feels such a deal would not solve the industry's current oversupply challenges. The analyst also believes that a deal, should it occur, could put Mosaic (MOS) at a disadvantage since it would potentially give the combined company a 67% ownership in Canpotex. Wong thinks the Canpotex structure would need to be reworked if a merger is consummated.

Jefferies views Bayer buyout of Monsanto as 'relatively unlikely'
After Monsanto (MON) confirmed an unsolicited offer from Bayer (BAYRY), Jefferies analyst Laurence Alexander says he still believes a transaction is "relatively unlikely." The analyst expects Monsanto to object to Bayer's offer given its conviction in its research and development pipeline and longer-term competitive advantages. Shares of Syngenta (SYT) and DuPont (DD) could be pressured as regulatory scrutiny is likely to intensify should Monsanto get acquired, and BASF (BASFY) could sell off on investor concerns of a potential counter-bid, Alexander tells investors in a research note. On the other hand, he sees a potential Monsanto takeover as positive for shares of Novozymes (NVZMY) and FMC Corporation (FMC). "A further roll-up of 'specialty generic' agrichemical assets could entice capital, and FMC would be a plausible anchor for such an attempt," the analyst writes. He has a Hold rating on Monsanto with a $95 price target.

As previously reported, Atlantic Equities downgraded CF Industries to Neutral from Overweight and lowered its price target to $24 from $31. Analyst Colin Isaac said CF's Q2 report was broadly in line but management presented a bearish view for the global nitrogen markets, suggesting prices are unlikely to improve through 2017 given overcapacity and weak crop prices. Further, higher natural gas prices remain a significant risk and CF's limited balance sheet flexibility limits cash returns until 2018, the analyst wrote.

Neivert said an increase in U.S. corn acreage to 93.6M acres from 88M acres, combined with likely gains in Brazilian and Argentine output, would likely result in a very sizable drop in both corn price and 2017 corn acreage, which would create further headwinds for Ag shares. The analyst lowered his price target for CF to $25 from $44, cut his target for Mosaic to $23 from $32, trimmed his target for Potash to $14 from $16.
