11:44 EDTPOT, BHPPotash Corp. advances after report says BHP could make new bid
Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan (POT) shares are higher this morning following a report that indicated BHP Billiton (BHP) may make another bid for the company. BHP Billiton, a diversified natural resources company, previously tried and failed to buy Potash Corp., an integrated fertilizer and related products maker, in 2010, but failed the government's "net benefit test" and the Saskatchewan government opposed a deal. WHAT'S NEW: The Globe and Mail this morning reported that BHP could consider making a new bid for Potash Corp. The Canadian publication notes that a deal is "not a sure thing," but adds that owning Potash Corp. would be the best way for BHP Billiton to get into the potash business. The Globe and Mail said the value of the potential deal could be "more like $40B," though the "real" cost would be less. BHP has not expressed interest in Potash's operations in phosphate and nitrogen, according to the report, which speculates that BHP could possibly look to sell off those operations and could also look to mothball Potash Corp's $15B Jansen project in Saskatchewan. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The Fly notes that Jochen Tilk will become president and CEO of Potash Corp. on July 1. ANALYST REACTION: Miller Tabak upgraded shares of Potash to Neutral from Sell following the Globe and Mail report. PRICE ACTION: Potash Corp. shares trading in New York were up 60c, or 1.77%, to $34.49 in late-morning trading. Meanwhile, BHP Billiton shares trading in New York were down $1.35, or 1.9%, to $69.89.

In its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's corn yield forecast is raised 4.3 bushels per acre to a record 171.7 bushels. Corn production for 2014/15 is forecast 363 million bushels higher at a record 14,395 million bushels. Total 2014/15 corn usage is projected at 13,605 million bushels, up 170 million from last month.
