Agrium cut to Hold at Stifel on lower potash, nitrogen prices

  • Agrium (AGU -0.7%) is downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel Nicolaus, which also removes its $99 target price on the stock; in addition to lower potash prices, the firm believes AGU also will be negatively impacted by lower nitrogen prices in 2014.
  • While AGU shares should benefit from the retail segment's contribution in Q2, the firm thinks lower fertilizer prices will negatively impact 2014 earnings in the wholesale segment.

    Only reason I continue to hold is the buffering from the retail segment. To think that Janus Partners wanted them out of that segment.
