Agrium upgraded to Buy from Hold at Vertical Research
Vertical Research analyst Sandy Klugman upgraded Agrium (AGU) and Potash (POT) to Buy from Hold to reflect improved risk/reward saying both shares are approximately 20% below their early January peaks. Klugman believes the soon to be merged entity will continue to optimize each company's respective wholesale fertilizer assets, and expects Agrium's Retail earnings and margins will continue to rise even in a low price environment.
