  • If Zack charged money for it's strong sells recommendations, I would pay double that. The biggest winners come from Zack's strong sell. I don't know how they are still in business.
  • After hearing about what is happening in the Great Plains right now, perhaps today's gains may not be the usual one day wonders. The ongoing drought is decimating a huge portion of the U.S. wheat crop, pushing prices to multiyear highs and drawing hedge funds and other speculative investors into the grain futures markets. Farmers sowed the fewest acres of wheat in a century this year given the strong U.S. dollar and the global grain glut due to booming production in Russia and elsewhere. But with grain prices moving higher, there could be a lot more planting in the U.S. later in the year with a concomitant increase in fertilizer applications. And that is the likely culprit of today's jump in AGU's share price.
  • Key AG stocks [POT, CF, AGU] having a good up day ~6%. Could be a periodic flush out of the Shorts or perhaps recent increases in crop prices is a motivator. Anyway, tomorrow is another day and these stocks are eminently capable of dropping all of what they are picking up today. These are among the worst performing stocks in 2017 and usually do not have 2 UP days in a row which is what you would expect of weak stocks with no catalyst to make them move up on a consistent basis.
  • Down $3.00 within first 10 minutes of trading on no news. Great start to the day.
  • Another upgrade, another bounce- Scotiabank from sector perform to outperform
  • AGU up nicely today even without a faux announcement of a resumption of a joint venture between Uralkali and Belaruskali. Probably a dead cat bounce but a welcome one nevertheless.
  • AGU down 19 of last 23 trading days. Not exactly a rave review.
  • Perhaps a short-term pull back is more likely before the next rally on AGU? if you guys have questions you should ask awe.some.stocks. They often respond to my emails which is helpful.
  • Take a look at the last 3 trading days including today so far. DOW up 150, AGU down. DOW down 100+, AGU down. DOW up 100+, AGU down. Not a pretty picture. AGU has to be one of the worst performing stocks during 2017.
  • It is only Wednesday but Friday's gains are already almost gone. Let's see where the stock closes this Friday. Perhaps we need to accelerate the timing of these periodic rumors regarding a resumption of the joint venture between Uralkali and Belaruskali. Instead of hearing this bogus blather, say, every 3 months, why not every 4-6 weeks? That way the lemmings will boost the share price more often. Of course it always goes back down.
  • AGU is up 4.93% to 95.59
  • Since I owned $AGU I was getting laid regularly until this merger, now I am getting cutoff with regularity
  • Been in $AGU for almost 10 years. Feel like I shouldn't have been.
  • Wonder if some are having second thoughts about the deal or whether or not it is dragging down AGU? Not sure, but it appears some want out despite forthcoming merger. My opinion
  • Buying AGU above $89 or POT above $16 is not a bargain pre-merger. Keep that in mind. And, you may want to read terms of what the new share ratio will be once the merger is official. my opinion
  • I purchase AGU.TO a few weeks ago and have been disappointed ever since. I was looking for a solid stock and a dividend return. Looks like I might take my loses and move on.
  • All the AG stocks are pretty toxic right now. Maybe in 3-5 years from now things will be different but this is not an area in which to invest looking for gains in the near term. Today's downward reversal on a big up market day is more proof that the trend for these stocks [e.g., AGU, POT, CF] is to go lower no matter what the rest of the market is doing.
  • Failure is delay, but not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead-end street. http://dataunion.tistory.com/3835

  • Overall I think we will see upside for AGU in the short-term. Perhaps a pullback next day or so could occur I suppose but are yall also seeing a further leg higher? google awesomestoc-ks - they offer pretty good trade alerrts. you dont have to trade their tickers but it definetly helps you recognize possible patterns for stocks you're trading.
  • Something is fishy. POT and AGU are up about 6% on no news. Which perhaps means that something is going on that a few folks know about but the rest of us don't. I suppose it could have something to do with Bernstein's call for a PT of $119 on AGU yesterday but the stock did not react yesterday the way it has today. Maybe we will learn something later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, the moves of these stocks look very suspicious.
