Who Dares Challenge Goldman?

Wednesday, 14 Apr 2010 | 5:31 PM ET

Have ag stocks stalled? Goldman Sachs sure thinks so but Tim Seymour says, ‘not to fast!’

At issue is a note that Goldman put out on Wednesday in which they downgraded both Potash and Mosaic to ‘Neutral' from ‘Buy' citing weakness in fertilizer prices.

Goldman also lowered its 12-month price target on both stocks; Potash now has a price target of approximately $124 and Mosaic’s target is $64.

"Despite expectations for robust spring demand, our channel checks suggest the planned domestic potash price hike is not going through and recent nitrogen and phosphate prices have weakened," writes Goldman Sachs analyst Robert Koort in a note clients.

"We also see increased risk from poor weather delaying field work and moderating [agriculture] commodity prices."

Tim Seymour sees the situation a little differently What does he have to say? Watch the video now and find out!
