Mosaic stock (NYSE: MOS) has lost 8.7% in the last week, underperforming the S&P 500 (down 1.7%). Further, the same trend was observed over the last ten days (-12% vs 4.4%) and one month (-26% vs -8.5%). The stock rallied from $40 at the start of the year to $78 in April, however, it closed around $45 on 5th July. 

The Mosaic Company is one of the leading producers and marketers of concentrated phosphate and potash crop nutrients. The firm posted lower than expected results in the first quarter of 2022, missing both the revenues and earnings estimates. Further, its sales volumes were down 7% and 33% y-o-y in April for the potash and phosphate segments, respectively. On a similar note, the trend continued in May, with all the units reporting negative growth in volumes. It is one of the key reasons behind negative sentiment toward the stock.
