PotashCorp Revises 2008 Full-Year Guidance

"Potash prices remain strong due to reduced global production" Is this not a form of price fixing ? Are the major potash producers not playing games like the major oil producers ? Any thoughts out there ?  (Dec 20, 2008 | post #1)

Well fruithead,I sure hope we don't read about ya in a "flash report" because you ignored one of those safety regulations. Or are you still..."bull et-proof" I was on an OH+S commitee in 99 and had to get a young man out from under a 1500 lb slab and ship him off to the morgue because we didn't have good enough "safety regulations" then.Thankfully we do now. So please,no more singing about the hindrance of safety regulations.  (Dec 10, 2008 | post #3)

(Company spokesman Bill Johnson says Potash Corp. will comply with all the recommendations and incorporate them into training. He says one accident is too many and the company spends a lot of time and takes the safety of its facilities very seriously). I got news for ya Bill yer message ain't gettin down to middle management and front line supervisors very well cause they have all kinds of excuses to cover there behinds. And as long as you have the OH+S branch in your pocket,siding with you on 90% of all concerns,safety will always take a back seat to PRODUCTION !!!.  (Dec 3, 2008 | post #1)

One would think Mr.Moore and company would take care of his existing employees and go back to the bargaining table and sign an agreement before stepping out to entice others to join the company. If the native community looks at how he's treating his current employees they won't want anything to do with Potash Corp I would think.  (Nov 6, 2008 | post #1)

(And don't count on Lanigan walking. We've gone down that road before and that was back before my mutual's didn't lose ten grand in 3 months.) Yes.."Mr.Happ y to have a good job" it is a pitiful offer.But perhaps it's because of people like yourself that will grovelling take any pitiful amount they give you and smile with a mouthful of there B.S. and go away happy,that's your right.But some would like to do just a bit better. PS:And you obviously have been listening to the company line too much if you believe they don't have the support of the Lanigan brothers. PPS:I would think someone that's as smart as you would look for a better broker chum!!  (Nov 4, 2008 | post #9)

PotashCorp CEO's comments upset union officials

It would seem the pot is calling the kettle black here. If both sides did less "gum flappin" about leadership and more bargaining this issue would probably be resolved in no time.  (Oct 25, 2008 | post #1)

And the one glaring point is Potash Corp STILL continues to"Beat Down" it's employees with a very,very,very pitiful contract offer.They seem to have forgot those that made them these profits...sad,very sad. But...lets just keep pretending that there a great bunch of guys.  (Oct 23, 2008 | post #1)

Well Mike,they probably would if they could afford it.From my sources they have to pay the going rate like Joe Average.They don't get to purchase them for $29.00 bucks a share like "Bad Bill" and his band of Cronies.  (Oct 16, 2008 | post #3)

In my opinion it looks like PCS's Bill Johnson whom declined comment on this one.Pulled the chains of lesser players Richard Downey (Agrium) and Sheryl Nagel (Mosaic) to start barking about these charges. Hopefully that will free him up to help solve there current labor problems so we can all start making profits again.  (Oct 11, 2008 | post #2)

Picadilly mine untouched by potash panic in the markets

Well Horacio..It looks like some Potash Corp executives are taking your advice and lining there pockets,check this out:(Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan president of PCS sales George Delaney exercised 40,000 options for company shares at US$29.41 on Sept 30, 2008. He sold all of these shares the same day at prices ranging from US$130.08 to US$134.26, bringing these total company holdings back to 39,787 shares.) And they have the gall to cheap out on the miners that are making it all possible ??.  (Oct 4, 2008 | post #1)

Merrill speaks, Potash dives

I think it's a combo,Merrill's sharp sightedness and Investor savvy. And it will only get worse with the current labor problems out there !!  (Oct 2, 2008 | post #1)

Well it's pretty obvious where Bill Johnson has learned to tell his fibs from..check this out.... ("We appreciate this recognition from Dow Jones, but first and foremost our responsibility is to our many stakeholders, " Doyle said. “We want to best serve our employees,).... Yea..right Bill..Starve your employees to fatten up the many"stakehol ders".  (Oct 1, 2008 | post #1)
