Compass Minerals reports Q2 EPS (23c), consensus (16c)

Reports Q2 revenue $246.7M, consensus $246.56M. The company said operating earnings in Q2 declined 53% from 2017 results due to increased depreciation expense. It added, "Our second quarter is typically our lowest earnings period, however I am pleased that we delivered top-line growth across all our businesses. This provides a strong indicator that the fundamental market conditions for our businesses globally have continued to improve in 2018," said Fran Malecha, Compass Minerals' president and CEO. "I believe we are now better positioned to deliver on our efficiency investments in our salt business, drive growth in our specialty plant nutrition business and capitalize on strong grower economics in South America."

Underperform
Compass Minerals downgraded to Underperform with $60 target at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Christopher Parkinson last night downgraded Compass Minerals to Underperform from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $60 from $63. The analyst sees "increased margin challenges" from higher freight costs and flat volumes in Plant Nutrition North America, which he believes will more than offset "fairly optimistic" salt volume expectations. The company's weaker first half of 2018 guidance places "significant pressure" on the second half, Parkinson tells investors in a research note.

Market Perform
Compass Minerals price target lowered to $70 from $75 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson lowered his price target on Compass Minerals to $70 following a Q4 revenue miss as well as increasing uncertainty around salt earnings. The analyst contends that the company is not benefiting proportionately from the strong North America winter demand while also pushing through the higher costs associated with technical issues at the Goderich salt mine to consumers. Jackson keeps his Market Perform rating on Compass Minerals.

Overweight
Compass Minerals initiated with an Overweight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Mark Connelly initiated Compass Minerals with an Outperform rating and a price target of $74. Connelly notes that while three consecutive disappointing snow seasons may be unusual, he does not believe that global warming is weighing on demand for road salt. Instead, the analyst contends that the company's is at "trough earnings". Connelly adds that the demand for Compass Minerals' specialty fertilizer products continues to grow and also points to the company's cost reduction and M&A expectations driving higher growth rates.

Agriculture has faster rebound potential than rest of materials, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Mark Connelly noted that the entire materials sector, including agriculture inputs, has been pressured by the escalation of trade tension. However, he thinks the ag sector has the potential for a faster rebound given his view that food price inflation is "among the most politically dangerous issues that government's face" and the fact that China cannot fill its soybeans needs without U.S. imports. Ag stocks Connelly mentions include Nutrien (NTR), Mosaic (MOS), FMC Corporation (FMC), DowDuPont (DWDP), CF Industries (CF), Intrepid Potash (IPI) and Compass Minerals (CMP).
