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.
