08:26 EDTAGUAgrium preferred over Potash, Mosaic at Canaccord
Canaccord said they prefer Agrium (AGU) over both Potash (POT) and Mosaic (MOS). Mosaic raised its guidance due to its phosphate business, but with a lack of catalysts expected in the potash market in 2015 the firm continues to see solid growth volume, increasing nitrogen margins, and free cash flow expansion for Agrium. Canaccord maintains its Buy rating on Agrium and its Hold rating on both Mosaic and Potash shares.

The consensus EPS estimate is 57c..Mosaic stated, "Demand for potash and phosphates exceeded our expectations during the fourth quarter,. We were cautiously optimistic going into the fall application season with good crop nutrient affordability and an empty supply chain, but customers came to the market in force, as they sought to position inventory in anticipation of a strong spring season and increasing crop nutrient prices...Our Phosphates business sold 3.3 million tonnes of finished product during the quarter - well above our expectations - and our Potash business produced at a high operating rate due to a successful proving run at the Colonsay mine." Mosaic's peers include Potash (POT) and Agrium (AGU).
