China Takes a Big Stake in Potash

The drama for potash producers has entered a new phase. China's sovereign fund has converted a bond holding into equity and now owns 12.5% of Uralkali, the company that started the drama when it pulled out of Belarus Potash Corp. a couple of months ago. Should investors in PotashCorp (NYSE: POT  ) , Mosaic (NYSE: MOS  ) , and others cheer because the worry about falling potash prices is over? Or is this just another step in a story that's doing nothing but roil the markets? Watch the video below to find out.

    What interests me about China’s 12.5% stake in Uralkali is its move to become a player in the potash commodity market as well as a consumer. Are we moving towards a domination of natural resources by a few powerful governments (not private owners)?
