Citi cuts Q1 fertilizer estimates on slow start to spring season

Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar cut his Q1 earnings for CF Industries (CF), Mosaic (MOS) and Nutrien (NTR) saying the start to the spring has been slow due in part to tough weather conditions in much of the Midwest. The cuts are driven by weather, not a change in fundamentals, Juvekar tells investors in a research note. He expects U.S. demand will pick up soon and thinks it is too early to "throw in the towel" for the spring season. Juvekar prefers shares of Nutrien, CF and Mosaic, in that order, and keeps Buy ratings on all three names.

Market Perform
CF Industries downgraded to Market Perform at Bernstein on nitrogen volatility
As previously reported, Bernstein analyst Jonas Oxgaard downgraded CF Industries to Market Perform from Outperform as he believes nitrogen prices will be flat in 2019, leaving it fairly valued. The analyst is conscious that ammonia prices, urea prices, and CF earnings are highly sensitive to Chinese coal price and changes in the price-setting mechanism, however, and he expects continued volatility in nitrogen and, consequently, CF share price.

Stephens upgrades CF Industries to Overweight, sees improved risk/reward
Stephens analyst Mark Connelly upgraded CF Industries to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $60 from $55. The analyst expects "solid" nitrogen demand to keep CF volumes high, even if the cost curve is flatter. The stock at current levels is reflecting a flatter curve than is likely, which brings an improved risk/reward profile, Connelly tells investors in a research note. Further, he estimates CF's leverage will drop to a "comfortable" 2.4 times by year end. The company's free cash potential over the next two years can average greater than $5 per share, contends the analyst.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. eBay (EBAY) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Brian Nowak saying he had been wrong in his prior view about how quickly core marketplaces would deteriorate. 2. Bank of America (BAC) and Morgan Stanley (MS) were downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette. 3. Mosaic (MOS) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying there are signs of increased phosphate exports from China, which have the potential to loosen the supply/demand balance in phosphate in 2019, leading to a weaker phosphate price dynamic. 4. Verizon (VZ) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Simon Flannery saying he contends that the stock's 11% year-to-date advance prices in the company's good news, including its $4B free cash flow improvement this year. 5. Fluor (FLR) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jerry Revich saying Fluor management noted that it was underbid on a major U.S. liquefied natural gas project that the analyst expected to be a catalyst in 2019.

JPMorgan downgrades Mosaic to Neutral on China phosphate risk
JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas downgraded Mosaic to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $33 from $38. There are signs of increased phosphate exports from China, which have the potential to loosen the supply/demand balance in phosphate in 2019, leading to a weaker phosphate price dynamic, Zekauskas tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the possibility of increased China phosphate exports would also lead to some compression in the Mosaic trading multiple. The risk/reward balance in the shares appears to be moving in the direction of greater risk, says the analyst.

Stephens sees considerable upside in potash, ups Nutrien target to $68
Stephens analyst Mark Connelly said Nutrien is reaping the rewards of both acquiring PotashCorp at "the very bottom of the cycle" and taking advantage of PotashCorp's strong operating team. While he notes that nitrogen has "already had a good run," Connelly continues to see considerable upside in potash earnings, he tells investors. Following Nutrien's Q3 report, Connelly raised his price target on the stock to $68 from $64 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

Nutrien upgraded to Outperform at BMO Capital on portfolio advantages
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson upgraded Nutrien to Outperform from Sector Perform while keeping his $55 price target. The analyst is positive on the Fertilizer sector as an "attractive shelter in broader materials space", having "lower economic sensitivity" and little likelihood of crop prices falling below challenged multi-year ranges. Jackson adds that Nutrien stands out in the group given its "safer diversified portfolio, stable Canadian investor base, lower commodity price sensitivity, strong balance sheet, and large amount of capital to redeploy."
