    Nutrien’s Potash Mine Closure Adds to Bite of Canada Rail Strike

    (Bloomberg) -- The world’s largest fertilizer producer plans to temporarily close its biggest potash mine as the impact of a Canadian rail strike continues to spread.Nutrien Ltd. said Monday it notified workers of a two-week shutdown starting Dec. 2 at its Rocanville mine in the western Canadian province of Saskatchewan. About 550 of 600 employees are expected to be laid off.It’s the latest sign that the strike by 3,200 conductors and railyard operators that began on Nov. 19 at Canadian National Railway Co. is starting to bite. Ships are waiting for grain off the West coast and the Montreal Port Authority reported cargoes of grain, sugar, minerals and bulk liquids are stalled on CN convoys.“It is extremely disappointing that in a year when the agricultural sector has been severely impacted by poor weather and trade disputes, the CN strike will add further hardship to the Canadian agriculture industry,” Chuck Magro, chief executive officer of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based Nutrien said in a statement. “Any further disruption will be harmful to our business, the Canadian economy, and Canada’s competitive position and reputation as a reliable supplier of fertilizer and food.”More LayoffsThe shutdown equates to about 250,000 tons of potash production, according to Alexis Maxwell, a research director for Bloomberg Green Markets. Global potash markets have been weak this year, which has already prompted Nutrien to curtail production at some of it’s other Saskatchewan mines.More furloughs are looming. In Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Canada’s east coast, the Unifor union said it received notice that 70 workers at a CN Rail autoport facility, which handles car distribution across North America, will be laid off as of Thursday due to the strike. The Chemical Industry Association of Canada also predicted companies would soon be shutting down operations and laying off workers.Port DelaysAbout 12 vessels are waiting for grain in English Bay and another four in the Gulf Islands off the west coast of Vancouver, according to the Port of Vancouver.“Things will really start to escalate at this point,” Mark Hemmes, president of grain monitor Quorum Corporation, said in a phone interview. “You can get away with a week or maybe 10 days, and see some recoverability.”Jonathan Abecassis, a spokesman for CN, said negotiations continue and reiterated a call for binding arbitration. The network is operating at about 10% capacity, CN has said. A representative for the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference union didn’t immediately return calls.Read more: Oil, Wheat Shipments Grind to Halt and Imperil Canada’s EconomyThe government, which faces calls from provinces and industry groups to force strikers back to work, has so far repeated a preference for a negotiated settlement.The dispute, over working conditions and benefits, is threatening to hobble Canada’s export industries and stunt its already weakening growth. The strike could shave off almost a quarter-point from growth this quarter if it lasts through Dec. 5, according to Toronto-Dominion Bank economists. That’s when lawmakers, who have the power to break the impasse, return to parliament.CN shares were down 0.3% at C$120.98 at 2 p.m. in Toronto and have lost about 2.3% since the strike began on Nov. 19.Farmers in Montreal also marched to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s constituency office in the city on Monday to urge the government to find a way to end the strike.An increasing number of grain producers have run out of propane and have little choice but to let crops rot in the fields, with financial losses in sight, said Patrice Juneau, a spokesman for the Quebec farmers union, L’Union des producteurs agricoles. Small animals such as piglets or chicks also can’t survive without heating, he said.Some companies are starting to pitch in. Calgary-based Pembina Pipeline Corp. said in a statement Sunday that it plans to ship propane to parts of Canada, including Quebec. It’s preparing unit trains, made up of 105 cars, with propane sourced from western Canada. “Pembina’s facility is the only one in Canada capable of amassing these quantities of propane and building such unit trains,” the company said in its release.\--With assistance from Natalie Obiko Pearson.To contact the reporters on this story: Sandrine Rastello in Montreal at srastello@bloomberg.net;Ashley Robinson in Winnipeg (Non BLP Loc) at arobinson193@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Scanlan at dscanlan@bloomberg.net, Jacqueline ThorpeFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    This winning stock investing strategy may be losing its mojo after 12 years

    Now they are cautiously, tentatively, wondering if this time will be different: Value in September had one of its strongest months in many years, relative to growth — with the S&P 500 Value Index outperforming the S&P 500 Growth index by 3.4 percentage points. One perspective on this question is provided by the chart below, which plots the relative performance of the S&P 500 Growth Index over the S&P 500 Value Index. Notice that the late-August peak in this relative performance came at almost precisely the same level that prevailed when the internet bubble burst in early 2000.

    K+S cuts output, sees lower earnings on weak potash demand

    German mineral miner K+S will cut production of potash fertilisers, dragging core earnings lower, as a halt imposed by China on potash imports dampens global markets. "In the current weak market environment, which is further intensified by the continuing Chinese import bans on the standard potassium chloride product, adjusting production is a difficult decision, but the right one," K+S executive Alexa Hergenroether said in a statement on Monday. The group's potash output will be reduced by up to 300,000 tonnes by the end of the year, holding back core earnings, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), by as much as 80 million euros ($88 million), the company said.
