  • Should You Avoid All Potash Producers?

    By Federico Zaldua - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: BHP, IPI, POT

    Uralkali, one of the biggest and most cost efficient potash producers in the world, has just announced a change in its marketing strategy from price-over-volume to volume maximization. Since Uralkali's marginal production costs are just below $100 per tonne and current potash prices are around $400 per tonne (a few years ago the price was at $900), the price of this commodity might keep on plummeting going forward.

  • Is the Potash Industry Doomed?

    By Bob Ciura - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: IPI, POT, MOS

    In a dramatic move that clearly surprised the market, Russia’s Uralkali disrupted one of the world’s largest potash partnerships by ending its joint venture with its partner in Belarus. Because of this, potash production is expected to jump, and as a result, global potash prices are expected to decline by as much as 25%.

    This caused a massive hemorrhaging in shares of potash producers, including Potash Corp. (NYSE: POTmore »)

  • This Potash Producer Is Ripe for a Breakout!

    By Ted Cooper - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: IPI, POT, MOS

    In many industries, companies differentiate their products as a means to attract customers and justify higher prices. However, in commodity industries, the product is uniform and the price is set by the market. Therefore, the only way for companies to differentiate themselves is by becoming the lowest-cost producer -- thereby enabling the company to earn higher margins than its peers.

    Potash producers sell a commodity product. Therefore, market leaders like Mosaic more »

  • Why You Should Invest in the Leaders of the Agriculture Industry

    By Damian Illia - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: IPI, MON, SYT

    World population growth is putting an ever increasing stress on food producers. The situation is aggravated by irregular rain patterns and soil degradation. In order to meet the rising demand, since the 1960’s, farmers have turned to genetically modified seeds, pesticides, and nutrients.

  • Is Your Favorite Stock About to Fizzle?

    By Neha Chamaria - March 15, 2013 | Tickers: AGU, CF, IPI, POT, MOS

    One industry that grabbed eyeballs as 2013 kicked off was fertilizers. Companies dealing in potash were at the forefront as deals flew in from two of the most important markets for the nutrient. The contracts that the cartel Canpotex, which includes PotashCorp (NYSE: POT), Mosaic (NYSE: MOS), and Agrium (NYSE: AGU), bagged from China and India early this year is kind of old news by now.

    At a time when most stocks are hitting new highs, it surprises me to see this one languishing at a price barely 10% away from its 52-week low.

  • 3 Bubbles Investors Should Watch Out For

    By William Bias - January 22, 2013 | Tickers: IPI, KGC, SWHC, RGR, MOS

    Investopedia characterizes bubbles as, “rapid expansion followed by a contraction.” The dot com bubble of the 90s where technology stocks with lousy fundamentals soared to the stars due to the enthusiasm surrounding the “new tech paradigm” serves as one of the most famous examples. Then at the turn of the millennium the dot com bubble burst taking the rest of the stock market along with it. Investing during a bubble period can bring great harm to a portfolio. Being mindful of bubbles can tell the investor what to stay away from and whether or not to wait for a better stock price entry point. Right now, three bubbles quietly expand.
