13:44 EDTMOS, AGU, POTFertilzer companies rise after joint venture reaches Chinese deal
Fertilizer makers are advancing after fertilizer marketing company Canpotex reached a deal to supply 1M tonnes of potash in the first half of 2013 to China's Sinofert Holdings, according to PotashCorp (POT). Canpotex is jointly owned by PotashCorp along with fellow fertilizer makers Agrium (AGU) and Mosaic (MOS). Under the agreement, Sinofert will pay $70 per ton less than its previous contract price with Canpotex, which was agreed to in March 2012. In a note to investors, Citigroup wrote that the contract price was somewhat lower than it had expected. Moreover, the firm remains cautious on the sector due to the uncertainty regarding demand in India and the possibility that there could be downward pressure on prices in other key markets. On the other hand, the deal between Canpotex and Sinofert creates a floor for global potash prices and provides some clarity on the market for early 2013, the firm added. Citigroup maintained Neutral ratings on shares of Potash, Mosaic and Agrium. In mid-afternoon trading, PotashCorp rose 2.44% to $40.74, Mosaic gained 2.17% to $56.41 and Agrium added 2.38% to $100.31.

COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) had a role in the Nasdaq's outperformance, as the tech giant climbed after a number of research firms, including Susquehanna, Cantor and KGI Research, were upbeat on the outlook for the company's performance during the holiday season. The iPhone maker's stock rose $2.15, or 1.85%, to close at $118.62 to close just below the 52-week high of $118.77 it hit late in the session... United Technologies (UTX) fell $1.51, or 1.37%, to $108.79 after the Dow member announced that Louis Chenevert had retired as Chairman and CEO, effective immediately. The company reaffirmed its expectations for 2014 earnings per share and sales, but provided little information regarding the abrupt exit of the executive.

Among the noteworthy losers was Ring Energy (REI), which fell $1.28, or 9.54%, to $12.14 after Canaccord downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy, citing the the recent decline in crude oil prices and the potential need for the company to raise capital.
