    – If it falls below our Stoploss then the attractive price will be 20.
    – There is a strong support zone towards lower levels and stock may fall 10% more from the current levels to 32-30
    – The current support zone also acted as a resistance zone earlier in 2019.

Our Final Thought: First of all, The Revenue of the Mosaic company is higher than its current market cap with low debt on the book. The company’s stock price compared to future earnings looks good, and its cash flow ratio is the lowest it’s been since 2013. Earnings yield is also decent. The company’s predictions for Q3 sales and prices seem cautious, especially for phosphate. Considering the fair valuation and potential phosphate supply limitations, the stock looks attractive at its current price. On the charts price action is lower-low and we are expecting the double-bottom formation at the 30 levels. If it goes below the last lower swing then you have to exit and wait for $20 which will be the best price for investors. The company also focuses on returning value to shareholders which we think is just another reason for the company to be a long-term addition to a portfolio.
