Fertilizer stocks are hit after the USDA reports corn stockpiles are 150M bushels larger than expected. Mosaic (MOS -6.9%) shares hit a 52-week low; CF Industries (CF -7.3%) also slides. But chicken producers Sanderson Farms (SAFM +4.3%) and Tyson Foods (TSN +4.3%) gain, along with pork processor Smithfield (SFD +4%), benefiting from lower animal feed prices.
