FMC Corporation begins registration of new fungicide active ingredient

FMC Agricultural Solutions has begun the joint U.S. EPA and Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency registration process for bixafen, a new pyrazole carboxamide fungicide that belongs to a new generation of succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors. Registration is being sought for corn, soybeans, cereals, canola, peanuts and potatoes in the U.S. and, in some instances, Canada. FMC acquired exclusive rights to bixafen from Bayer CropScience to develop and distribute the novel product for row crops in the U.S. and Canada.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) downgraded to Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Joseph Greff, who said the shares are likely to be range-bound until the Macau market shows signs of stabilization. He adds that the stock at current levels has "gotten ahead of itself" and expectations for improving Macau fundamentals. 2. Cummins (CMI) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst David Leiker citing stretched valuation and expects performance to remain under pressure from the challenging NAFTA Class 8 environment. 3. Knight Transportation (KNX) downgraded to Outperform at Raymond James based on less than 15% upside to the revised price target. It was also downgraded at Stifel due to the lower than expected Q1 EPS and the belief that the company did not show normal seasonal strength at the end of March. 4. Werner (WERN) downgraded to Hold at Stifel citing the company's Q1 EPS miss, soft pricing and a tough freight environment. 5. FMC Corporation (FMC) downgraded to Neutral at Credit Suisse by analyst Christopher Parkinson, who believes channel inventories in the Americas are bloated and will take time to draw down and that the pricing environment will remain challenging through Q2 and Q3.

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.
