Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly MOS is a US manufacturer and world's largest producer of nutrients used in fertilizer for markets in North America and internationally. Recently reported revenues were up 37% and margins ballooned by 193%. It trades at 9x earnings, compared to peers at 21x. With good growth prospects its PEG ratio is just over 1.0 and it is trading at 1.3x book. It pays a small dividend that is backed by a payout ratio of 35% of cash flow. We would buy this with a stop loss at $21, looking to achieve $39.50 -- potential upside over 17%. Yield 0.89% (Analysts’ price target is $39.37)
chemicals
BUY

A JPMorgan report forecasts tighter agricultural yields, but higher demand short-term. Last month, MOS reported lower operating costs and higher productivity. This has room to run and there are few fertilizer stocks to invest in.

chemicals
BUY
It just made a higher low since end-May. Fertilizer seasonality is coming up. Put this on your radar for a trade or long term. Seasonally, it declines in the first part of a year, then bounces back in the summer into fall.
chemicals
DON'T BUY
We are late stage in the market. He suggests MOO-N because it is a larger basket and you diversify your risks. This is not the time to go for yield.

COMMENT

It’s often dangerous to buy commodity stocks when they look cheap, because that often occurs when earnings have reached a peak. This competes with Potash (POT-T), a better managed company with a better group of assets and a stronger balance sheet. To buy any of these companies, you have to be a big believer that potash and fertilizer prices are going to rise.

chemicals
COMMENT

Has about $3 billion of corporate buybacks that will be taking place this year.

chemicals
COMMENT

Seems to be trying to form a base at this level, but it is range bound. It is pretty neutral on a technical basis. He doesn’t have an opinion.

chemicals
HOLD

(Market Call Minute) Potash prices and demand have fallen off. Owns POT-T. Holds because everybody has to eat.

chemicals
DON'T BUY

She is not in this sector. Who knows how that is going to happen now to the whole issue of Potash (POT-T),. Potash prices are declining. Corn prices have gone down, which is not necessarily good for fertilizer companies. She would stay away from all fertilizer companies until we know what happens in potash.

chemicals
DON'T BUY

On top of everything else, China entered the fertilizer fray by taking 13% of a Russian potash producer. China is not looking to maximize its return on investments, but to maximize its return on cheap fertilizer. This would suggest that prices are still likely to work lower. He also sees downside risks for both Potash (POT-T) and Agrium (AGU-T).

chemicals
BUY

BHP Billiton (BHP-N) wants to get into potash so there is always a potential of a possible takeover. If you own, be patient and wait for this nonsense in Russia to cool off. (See Top Picks.)

chemicals
TOP PICK

Different than POT and AGU. This one is a special situation. It has phosphate which is his favourite nutrient. 12 times earnings. $2.5 billion on the balance sheet. Thinks they will buy back stock with the extra cash.

chemicals
HOLD

You may want to stay with this one. There are brighter days ahead. Review in a year.

chemicals
WAIT

Nothing wrong with it. He is looking at it right now. There is a big chunk owned by Cargil and he is waiting to see what happens with that. Likes MOS. It is well positioned.

chemicals
COMMENT

There is a very good chance this could be a takeout candidate for BHP Billiton (BHP-N) who wants to get into this sector.
