World demand for MOS products are strong in most locales. The company is well-positioned for improving industry conditions. The one constant around the world is that demand for both potash and phosphate remains strong. Global phosphate shipments should hit a record this year, although potash output will probably drop slightly from 2014's record level.

You could wait for more weakness, or go long at a strategic entry point.

Potash Corp. has dropped more than 50%, but has good fundamentals.

Shares of MOS now seen reaching $42, according to Morgan Stanley. Estimates also reduced, given lower expected potash prices. Overweight rating.

We truly are in a market without memory from day to day. Sell Rosh Hashanah, buy Yom Kippur? S's over N's; even "FANG" -- Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOGL) -- is getting schmeissed. (Speaking of FANG, I made a stupid move in covering my FB short this week). The "Rising Wedge" has been broken to the downside. This week is a reminder that traders sell down and buy up. (Dumb, from my perch.) Bonds reverse yesterday's weakness,  and then some! iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) is up $2 on the day. I am very close to going back "all in" long ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (TBF). My "Trades of the Week" -- both long Bank of America (BAC) and short Comcast (CMCSA) -- are doing well both relatively and absolutely. Currency volatility (a dive in the Brazilian real), mounting woes at Volkswagen (autos are at the heart of the German economy; DAX down 7% to 8% in the last week), Hillary Clinton dinging pharma/health care pricing and continued signs that global economic growth expectations are too optimistic have contributed to today's market schmeissing. A bunch of profit warnings out today, including Mosaic (MOS), which has had a collateral impact on Potash (POT). I made a number of portfolio changes toda

I covered part of my short of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $193.66 in premarket trading.

In the years ahead, food could be rationed by higher prices and fertilizer demand could rise; those companies will benefit.

Mosaic's momentum is encouraging, and its Relative Strength Index shows an attractive slope.
