Agrium (AGU.TO, AGU) Starts to Climb


Agrium (AGU.TO, AGU) recently announced a merger with Potash Corp. (POT.TO, POT). The merger is expected to be completed by mid 2017. Looking through the stocks in the fertilizer industry group, there are some positive signs showing up.

Agrium's US chart (AGU) looks almost as bullish.

Potash Corp (POT) will be merging so I am reluctant to place too much value on the chart shape. But the SCTR ranking suggests this is becoming a top performer.

Here is CF Industries (CF) which got Tom Bowley's attention on the weekend. (Tom's article)

Mosaic (MOS) looks good too. It is not quite testing the 1-year ceiling.

Here are some other companies with Potash in their name.

Intrepid (IPI) has not broken out yet.

SOIL is a Fertilizer ETF. It does not looks as bullish, but it is closer to an average of the stocks.

The bottom line is the industry group looks to have a heartbeat here after being beaten up for years.
