Mosaic cut to Sell at Goldman, shares reflect overly optimistic potash view

  • Mosaic (MOS) is downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs, which maintains a cautious coverage view on fertilizer stocks underpinned by a negative outlook for corn and soybean prices over the next 12 months that will pressure farmer economics and 2015 acreage potential.
  • With MOS discounting $360-$370/metric ton potash prices in 2015, and down only 8% from the break-up of Belaruskali in late July, the firm believes shares already reflect an overly optimistic medium-term price recovery.
  • MOS -0.8% premarket.
