I just did a job with Certainteed fiber cement stucco panels. We covered the seems with pvc, but in your case I would just caulk the seems. Make sure you flash behind the seems well. The panels are made so when they are butted they blend with only a hairline crack. Here is how I flashed it. I made drip caps with lead coated copper for all horizontal seams.
