11:30 EDTPOT, IPI, MOS, AGUAnalyst says investors should unload fertilizer stocks
Investors should sell stocks of fertilizer makers, BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson wrote today in a note to investors. WHAT'S NEW: Fertilizer stocks may not rise much this year, as their multiples have already increased significantly compared with chemical and mining stocks, and the market as a whole, BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson wrote. Moreover, Jackson believes that the stocks already reflect the lift that the sector typically gets during January and February, along with the possibility that the Belarusian Potash Company will be rejuvenated. A cartel that was created in an effort to keep fertilizer prices high, the company was disbanded when Russian potash maker Uralkali withdrew from it last year. Moreover, analysts' 2014 and 2015 estimates for the sector must drop further, partly because crop prices have dropped significantly, while the potash supply/demand dynamic is deteriorating, the analyst added. He identified Agrium (AGU) as his top pick in the sector, and kept Market Perform ratings on Potash (POT) and Mosaic (MOS). He maintained an Underperform rating on Intrepid Potash (IPI). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Potash gained 2% to $35, Mosaic advanced 3% to $49.50, Agrium added 0.7% to $94.30, and Intrepid Potash rallied 4% to $17.

06:29 EDTPOTPotash raises FY14 global shipments to 56.5M-58M tonnes
Expects strong domestic order book in 2H14. Producer inventories in North America are projected to remain tight as scheduled maintenance downtime is expected to limit production for most producers in a period of relatively robust demand. North America shipments are expected to be strong during the third quarter as dealers work to position product in advance of what is anticipated to be an active fall application season. For full-year 2014, the company expects potash shipments to this market could exceed 10M tonnes. Potash demand in Latin America is expected to remain strong ahead of its key planting season. Potash anticipates shipments to this market will remain elevated through the third quarter although total deliveries could slow relative to those of the comparative period last year. Maintains our view that Latin American demand could reach record levels in 2014 of approximately 10.5 million tonnes. In China, potash demand will approximate 12M tonnes. or the full year, Canpotex will ship approximately 1.2 million tonnes under terms contained in the January 2014 contract with Sinofert.

08:34 EDTMOSMosaic to permanently discontinue production of MOP at Carlsbad facility
Mosaic said in a filing that on July 21 it decided to permanently discontinue production of muriate of potash at its Carlsbad, New Mexico facility. The final date for production is expected to be December 31. The decision is based on the quality of the ore in the Carlsbad basin and the age of the facility's infrastructure. These combined factors make it difficult for the operations to remain competitive in an already challenging global market. The discontinuation of this product at Carlsbad is a further step in our previously announced ongoing asset optimization initiatives. Its larger potash production facilities at Esterhazy, Belle Plaine and Colonsay in Saskatchewan, Canada will continue to produce MOP.Mosaicís plan for the immediate future is to transition the Carlsbad facility to the exclusive production of its highly valued K-Mag product line. K-Mag is a premium potash product that currently represents approximately 70% of production at the Carlsbad facility and is a long-term strategic asset for us.We currently estimate that the discontinued production will result in total pre-tax charges in the range of $135M-$160M. The third quarter pre-tax charges are estimated to be in the range of $55M-$77M with the majority of the remainder expected to be recorded in the fourth quarter.
