Higher urea and potash prices to benefit fertilizers, says BMO Capital

BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson issued a quarterly preview on the Fertilizer segment, raising Q4 and FY18 estimates on higher urea and potash prices through spring. His model cites expectations of some demand growth, a higher cost curve in China and a rebound in demand from India. As part of his broader research note, Jackson is raising price targets on CF Industries (CF) to $38 from $35, SQM (SQM) to $50 from $45, and Potash (POT) to $17.50 from $17.00.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AMD (AMD) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital. 2. Zoetis (ZTS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Gregg Gilbert saying the risk/reward is more balanced with the shares up 18% year-to-date. 3. CF Industries (CF) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Christopher Parkinson citing the recent rally in shares. 4. Eli Lilly (LLY) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Leerink with analyst Seamus Fernandez saying that the regulatory update for Olumiant removes upside optionality in rheumatoid arthritis and possibly other indications given concerns over thrombosis risk. 5.

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.

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).

Buy
Potash upgraded to Buy from Hold at TD Securities
TD Securities analyst Greg Barnes upgraded Potash (POT) to Buy and increased its price target to $24 from $17.50 saying the merger with Agrium (AGU) will likely be completed in late Q4. Barnes expects Agrium will have to divest two US based plants with approximately 170,000 tpa capacity and Chinese and Indian regulators are requesting Potash divest minority ownership of certain assets as a condition of approval. The analyst said the growth capex cycle is behind Nutrien, the combined company, and expects ongoing sustained capex of $1.3B per year and $3.17 per share in free cash flow. Barnes views Nutrien risk/reward as compelling with a pro forma price target of $60 for the combined company.

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.

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.
