Potash play



July 31, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: POT , MOS , IPI

Well seeing all these potash companies getting crushed I decided to take a stake in POT and sold 10 Jan 28 2015 puts receiving a premium of $3.85.  So worse case I buy this stock for $24.15 or I keep $3,850.  I understand how there could be a pricing war which is why I went to 2015.  Was eying UAN as well but I want to see its earnings report first.

Sold some more puts and have the drypowder should stock drop more.  This stock is now actually becoming a yield play with a major stock buyback.  People should remember that POT sells mostly to US and Canada. I don't see the Russians disrupting that much at all.  The transportation costs from them would one-off any price savings.

In a market that keeps rising, take advantage of these, what I think are, contrived sector hits.  We saw it with LINE and MLPs, and now with AG.

For anyone who listened to me you might want to do some profit taking.  You can probably close this for 2.40, giving you a profit of over 37%.  I personally won't because I expect it to expire worthless by expiration and I really wouldn't mind being put the stock for about $24 a share.
