Potash Corp’s Buy Rating Reaffirmed at TheStreet (POT)
“Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B-. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.”
