This Narrow-Moat Basic Materials Firm Is Undervalued

Fertilizer-producer Nutrien offers attractive risk-adjusted upside potential.


Seth Goldstein: In scanning our coverage for undervalued stocks, we highlight narrow-moat Nutrien. Nutrien was formed in 2018 via the merger of Potash Corporation and Agrium.

Nutrien sells the three primary fertilizers--potash, nitrogen, and phosphate--which combine to generate half of its profits. The company is the largest producer of potash fertilizer in the world based on production capacity. The other half of Nutrien's profits come from its agricultural retail business, which is the largest in the world with over 1,700 stores.
