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.

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.
