Recommendations and price targets

As the chart above shows, analysts have a “hold” recommendation for most fertilizer stocks. PotashCorp (POT) and Agrium (AGU), which are both awaiting mergers, have a “hold” recommendation with a price target of $17 and $96.8 per share, respectively, over the next 12 months.

CF Industries (CF) also has mostly “hold” recommendations with a price target of $28 per share. Most analysts also recommend a “hold” for Mosaic (MOS). The stock has a 12-month price target of $25 per share. The current prices for these stocks are higher than analyst price targets, which indicates that the market is more optimistic than analysts about these two stocks.

Since Trump was elected, the US market has rallied. While the market speculates about why fertilizer stocks have rallied recently, investors with a long-term approach want to see fertilizer prices rise in the next year to get better returns.
