Intrepid Potash’s earnings
Earnings will likely rise
Intrepid Potash took a beating in recent years due to lower fertilizer prices and a relatively higher cost per unit of product. It was reflected in Intrepid Potash’s earnings, as you can see in the above chart. However, the estimates for the next 12 months show a reversal in the trend. Analysts estimate an EPS (earnings per share) of $0.06 for the next 12 months, which will rise from an EPS of -$0.39 in the last 12 months.
Looking at its peers, analysts also estimate growth for Mosaic’s (MOS) EPS. It’s expected to report an EPS of $1.07, which will grow 5% from $1.02 during the same period. Israel Chemicals (ICL) is also expected to report EPS growth of 27% to $0.36 from $0.28 in the last 12 months. CF Industries (CF) is estimated to report EPS growth from -$0.63 per share to $0.19 per share. While these estimates aren’t enough to tell whether all of the industry participants are positioned to gain in the coming year, we can certainly say that the outlook appears to have improved for these companies.
