Fields Of Gold – Agriculture Market Indicators Remain Positive

  • Fertilizer & agricultural chemical equities have outperformed other chemical sub-sectors since June, as crop and energy market trends remain constructive.
  • The US agriculture sector benefits from tight crop conditions supporting farmer spending, while overseas supply issues and low costs benefit fertilizer producers.
  • The energy sector faces long-term demand concerns and ESG pressure, and we think some players will increasingly focus on chemicals to spur long-term growth.
  • Commodity chemical markets should see increased availability, a typical plus for specialty producers. Demand concerns are limiting positive sentiment in both.
  • Otherwise, we note recent weakness in critical energy mineral values, discuss the US inflation reduction act, and study recent declines in global freight rates.
