  • Weekly Fertilizer Review
    Ammonia prices rocket higher

    Email Story
    The sharp increase in ammonia prices we began noticing last week hit home hard this week, as updated offer sheets show a lot of movement for farmers who waited to book fall fertilizers. The good news is that prices for other nutrients have begun to steady or even ease, though there's plenty of variance around the Midwest and Plains

    Ammonia jumped $35 to $75 a ton on wholesale markets, taking prices more than $100 higher on the Plains, where price increases were most notable. While prices in June were under $600 at some retailers, costs are now routinely topping $700 in the west. A few dealers are still as cheap as $620, but that's $50 up from their previous charges. Most retailers are in the $715 to $750 range on the Plains, where terminal prices shot up to $650 last week. Wholesale prices to the east in the Corn Belt are $10 cheaper, but that still suggests prices $700 or above. USDA put the average price in Iowa last week at $710, in a range from $640 to $780. Tight international supplies caused by shortages of natural gas and the ongoing tension in Russia and Ukraine, big producers, has buyers scrambling, triggering a rash of deals in other forms of nitrogen as well. Crop prices and acreage don't translate into higher prices, but buyers fear shortages and aren't waiting.

    Urea was very active on international markets, with Chinese producers taking advantage of higher prices while their sales window for exports is open. The question now is whether the market will continue its typically rally into late fall, or begin to ease back. The swaps market is betting the rally won't last past September, and some retail costs in the U.S. are already retreating. Urea is running $475 to $510 on the Plains, and USDA put the average in Iowa unchanged at $540. While fundamentals point to retail prices between $415 to $475, fair value currently is around $475 based on the wholesale market, and swaps don't indicate a huge break is likely. The current index at the Gulf is quoted at $350, with September $10 higher before prices fade to $327.50 for November/December.

    DJ Another Forecast Cut From Penn Virginia -- Market Talk

    Aug 25, 2014 07:16:00 (ET)

    7:16 EDT - Continued well-completion delays prompts another 2014 production-guidance cut from Penn Virginia (PVA), which stresses "well results continue to meet or exceed expectations." Problem is, new wells aren't coming on line as quickly as management had been expecting. PVA's Eagle Ford presence, though, is paying off, with anticipated 2H output in that Texas shale play being 50-60% above 1H. The company cuts anticipated 2H capital spending some 8% and lowers earnings guidance even more. Investors didn't take kindly to last month's forecast cut, sending PVA down 11% that day. Shares have reversed much of that decline, but a new one is liable to occur today. PVA, inactive premarket, is up 9.6% this mo

  • Two decades ago, Richard Kinder helped start a boom in reorganizing large U.S. companies so they're exempt from corporate income tax. Yesterday he said he's through with the idea.

    Kinder plans to buy up two companies he controls, known as master limited partnerships, for a combined $44 billion, consolidating his oil and natural gas pipeline empire under a single, taxable corporation known as Kinder Morgan Inc. The change will lower investor payouts, leaving heft to beat rivals on new projects or buy them up, he said.

    6:05 EDT - Amid a 24% jump in 2Q output, Swift Energy (SFY) gushes past consensus views as the oil-and-gas producer also increases 2014 production guidance. Leading the way was the company's Eagle Ford shale holdings, where SFY's daily average output surged 71% on-year. The results are welcome news for shareholders who have seen the stock slide 9.8% in July, including 2.4% this week. Expect a relief rally today. SFY is inactive premarket.
