13:08 EDTMOSPotash slips as analyst casts doubt on dividend
Feed and fertilizer companies Mosaic (MOS) and Potash Corp. (POT) are both trading lower after being cut to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan, with the research firm calling into question Potash's dividend yield in the face of weak pricing for its staple commodity products. DIVIDEND DOUBT: As lower nitrogen and potash prices pressure cash flows, Potash Corp. looks reasonably likely to cut its dividend down to $1.00 per share from $1.52 during 2016, JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas argued Tuesday. Zekauskas clarified, however, that the fertizilier company has "wide discretion" as to whether it might actually continue to pay its current dividend, given its $3B in monetizable equity and a healthy balance sheet that could allow additional leverage. That said, the analyst's base case is that Potash will shrink the dividend amid the industry's cyclical downturn, leading him to lower his rating on the stock to Neutral and significantly cut his 2016 earnings predictions to $1.10 from $1.45. MOSAIC: Zekauskas also lowered his rating on Mosaic to Neutral while slashing his 2016 EPS estimates to $1.85 from $2.75, citing weaker prices for potash and phosphate. Unlike Potash Corp., Mosaic looks unlikely to cut its roughly 4.6% dividend yield, the analyst said. Zekauskas maintained that both companies remain attractive for longer-term value investors, saying he plans to review their ratings after Potash potentially rethinks its dividend and Wall Street financial estimates move lower. CEO COMMENTS: Speaking at the January 21 CIBC investor conference, Potash CEO Jochen Tilk stated, "We obviously believe -- and I'm sure you concur -- that the dividend is an important part of our company. And [when] we look at the cash ability that we have in 2016, the first goal is to be prudent with our balance sheet... More specifically to the dividend, I can't talk because we have our board meetings next week... It's on the agenda. It's a big discussion. We've done a lot of work in the analysis. We've done exactly what you say. We've done all the work that leads to the visibility to our balance sheet." PRICE ACTION: Shares of Potash Corp. have fallen roughly 6.7% to $15.02, while Mosaic is down 5.7% to $22.50.

07:16 EDTINTCIntel upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Deepon Nag upgraded Intel to Oupterform and raised his price target to $35 from $34 on shares. The analyst believes the combination of easier comps and moderating competition in tablets and smartphones should result in a PC shipment growth acceleration into CY16. Additionally, Nag said Intel has been undershipping end-demand for all of 2015, which adds to estimates and potential upside as the PC supply chain replenishes inventories.
