The USDA is expected to report tomorrow expected corn stockpiles at summer's end will be 37% below last year, and possibly the lowest level ever relative to usage. "There will be no relief for consumers until later this year," says an ag economist, and that's only if high prices (and good weather) lead to a bumper crop. MOS -7% in the past month? What gives?

    For the record Al Gore was not in favor of ethanol. I heard there are huge stock stores of fertilizer around the world. The reason for low prices for POT and MOS. Not sure if its true.

    Al Gore was for not only ethanol, but ethanol subsidies. He's only recently turned against ethanol, but the horse is out of the barn. Just another thing we're paying for that we owe to that fool.

    MOS has to be a buy, unless i'm missing something (wouldn't be the first time). Fundamentally i see this: 1.Largest prospective corn acreage planting since 1937. 2. Near record high soy prices driving unused farm land into bean acres. 3. MOS made more money on MAR 1 than all of january. 4. 52 week low is around $44, only technicals pushing it down as of recent....what am I missing?
