UPDATE: Bank of America Reiterates on FMC as Minerals Spin Appears Logical


In a report published Thursday, Bank of America analyst Kevin W. McCarthy reiterated a Neutral rating on FMC (NYSE: FMC), and raised the price target from $77.00 to $86.00.

In the report, Bank of America noted, “We favor FMC's plan to separate its two Minerals lines (soda ash and lithium) via a tax-free spin-off. We believe separation will create shareholder value on a net basis as the benefits of more optimal capital allocation outweigh incremental costs incurred through dis-synergies and a likely increase in cost of capital for FMC Minerals. We remain Neutral, yet raise our PO to $86 from $77.”

FMC closed on Wednesday at $80.25.
