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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Square (SQ) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Paul Condra raising estimates to reflect the company's solid third quarter results. Condra continues to believe Square is exposed to strong secular headwinds and its years of product investment and brand building put it ahead of the competition. 2. Enphase Energy (ENPH) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer and to Outperform from Market Perform at Avondale. 3. Etsy (ETSY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Roth Capital with analyst Darren Aftahi saying he believes inherent operating leverage and the international opportunity in Etsy's model is "too compelling." 4. Mosaic (MOS) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at CLSA with analyst Mark Connelly citing valuation and stabilizing results. 5. Quotient Technology (QUOT) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital and to Buy from Hold at Maxim. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Mosaic upgraded to Buy on improving scale at CLSA
As previously reported, CLSA upgraded Mosaic to Buy from Outperform and maintained its $30 price target. Analyst Mark Connelly said market expectations already reflect a slow recovery and likes the fact that the company is increasing commodity exposure rather than decreasing it. He expects a distribution bounce back from two disappointing quarters and sees risks declining.

Mosaic reiterated as a Sell at Vertical Research
Vertical Research analyst Sandy Klugman said nitrogen and potash prices have shown signs of bottoming in recent weeks, but phosphate prices continue to soften and likely to remain under pressure given weak global demand and more than ample supplies. Against this backdrop, the analyst maintains a Sell rating on Mosaic and revised its price target to $20.

Energen (EGN) upgraded to Buy at Seaport Global by analyst Mike Kelly, who assigned additional value to the company's core Southern Delaware position, accounting for increased productivity on larger completions in the Midland Basin and increased confidence in planned asset sales. 2. Intrepid Potash (IPI) upgraded to Outperform at CLSA with analyst Mark Connelly saying that he has no assurance that the negotiations with lenders for covenant relief will be successful, but the debt is well covered. 3. Oasis Petroleum (OAS) upgraded to Buy at Jefferies by analyst Jonathan Wolff, who cited improvements in the global oil markets and the company's cost control. 4. TETRA (TTI) upgraded to Buy from Accumulate at Johnson Rice. 5. Dover (DOV) upgraded to Buy at BofA/Merrill. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cowen analyst Charles Neivert downgraded Potash (POT), Mosaic (MOS), Intrepid Potash (IPI) and CF Industries (CF), all to Underperform, citing the risk of further deterioration in the grain environment. He also cites the belief that nutrient prices and margins still have room to fail. Neivert said an increase in U.S. corn acreage to 93.6M acres, combined with likely gains in Brazilian and Argentine output, would likely result in a very sizable drop in both corn price and 2017 acreage. 2. PepsiCo (PEP) downgraded to Hold at Stifel citing valuation and its belief that the stock probably lacks "structural or growth-related catalysts." 3. Lennox (LII) downgraded to Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Jeffrey Hammond saying he expects the stock to trade more in line with the peers after a period of multiple expansion. 4. Omnicom (OMC) downgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo by analyst Peter Stabler, who said expectations for margin expansion are priced into the shares at current levels. 5. Graco (GGG) downgraded to Neutral at SunTrust citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Potash, Mosaic downgraded to Underperform at Cowen
As previously reported, Cowen analyst Charles Neivert downgraded Potash (POT), Mosaic (MOS), Intrepid Potash (IPI) and CF Industries (CF), all to Underperform from Market Perform, citing the risk of a further deterioration in the grain environment and the belief that nutrient prices and margins still have room to fall. 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. He keeps Market Perform ratings on Agrium (AGU) and CVR Partners (UAN), but lowered his targets on them to $86 and $8, respectively.
