Rumored Uralkali potash price increase pushes sector equities higher

Uralkali (URALL +9.7%) shares jump the most in four months on speculation that it may raise its prices for Brazil and China.

Uralkali is signaling that Brazilian buyers will have to pay $350-$360/ton on a cost-and-freight basis for granular potash for March volumes compared to the current $320/ton, J.P. Morgan analysts say.

Rumors also indicate Uralkali will sign its contract with China for the first half of the season soon at a possible price of $300/ton, which could set a price floor, according to Renaissance Capital.

Following up sharp gains yesterday, POT +3.4%, MOS +3.2%, AGU +1.4%, ISCHY +2.7%, SQM +6.8%, KPLUY +3.3%, IPI +3% today.

    I have held potash stocks for half a year and noticed the crazy price swing just by a mere story, rumor, etc then it crashes again. It's time to take profits and get out, there can't be any better news than this for potash. it will plunge once again in coming weeks
