CF Industries

On October 2, CF Industries (CF) received a target price upgrade from UBS. The stock gained ~1.8% and rose to $55.8 during the day. CF Industries has benefited from higher nitrogen fertilizer prices and low natural gas costs in the United States (MOO), which served as a tailwind. These factors also hold true for companies like Nutrien (NTR), CVR Partners (UAN), and Mosaic (MOS).
