Potash considering sale of stake in SQM, Mining.com reports

Potash Corp. (POT), which holds a 32% percent stake in Chile's SQM (SQM) and holds three seats on the lithium miner's board, may sell its stake as part of its effort to receive regulatory clearance for its proposed merger with Agrium (AGU), reported Mining.com, citing a Spanish language report published in the newspaper Diario Financiero. As previously reported, Potash and Agrium provided an update on the status of their proposed merger on September 7, in which they stated that the Ministry of Commerce in China and, independently, the Competition Commission of India "intend to condition their respective approvals of the proposed transaction on the divestment of certain of PotashCorp's offshore minority ownership interests."

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Micron (MU) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Mark Delaney saying DRAM pricing could rise in the fourth quarter and the cycle could remain tight in 2018. 2. DowDuPont (DWDP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Charles Neivert saying he believes the Specialty Products and Materials Science realignment is a major step in upgrading the eventual spinco earnings. 3. Finish Line (FINL) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Sam Poser saying he gives the company a 75% probability of being bought out, with a 25% chance the stock falls to $8 as a standalone entity. 4. Lydall (LDL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Sidoti with analyst Edward Marshall citing expectation the company's offerings will outpace the automotive peers due to market penetration and concentration in the fibers segment. 5. SQM (SQM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill and to Hold from Underperform at Santander. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

BofA/Merrill calls SQM best positioned player in lithium, ups to Buy
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill Lynch analyst Isabella Simonato upgraded SQM to Buy from Neutral, calling the company the lowest cost producer and best positioned player in lithium. The analyst, who notes that the U.K., France, Germany, and China have all made recent announcements or promises of plans to address gasoline and diesel car pollution, sees brighter prospects for lithium prices and raised her price target on SQM shares to $65 from $49.

Potash 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.

Short term buying opportunity for fertilizers is over, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Charles Neivert said the short-term buying opportunity on fertilizer shares is over as sentiment around yield destruction drove grain prices higher and fertilizer prices higher as well. He believes the worst is behind the market and valuation will return to being driven by supply/demand challenges. Fertilizer stocks include Potash (POT), Agrium (AGU) and Mosaic (MOS).

OTR Global changed its views on the Fertilizer sector to Mixed from Negative following checks that indicate US dealers have taken advantage of attractive summer prices to maintain or increase positions in most nutrients year-over-year. The firm's view on potash and phosphate producers, Agrium (AGU), Mosaic (MOS) and Potash (POT), and nitrogen producers Agrium (AGU) and CF Industries (CF) improved to mixed.

Update: Agirum upgraded to Outperform at Scotiabank
As previously reported, Scotiabank upgraded Agrium (AGU) to Outperform from Sector Perform and maintained a $110 price target. Analyst Ben Isaacson said it is "highly unlikely" the merger with Potash (POT) fails to go through and said Agrium offers a favorable 3.9% dividend yield versus Potash's 2.5%. Isaacson said Agrium's dividend is not only same but thinks it growth, potentially as early as this fall and sees an asymmetric risk/reward opportunity to be long the merger.
