On CAPS, 96% of the 1,285 members who have rated CF believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
2013 will be another banner year for farmers. The demand for fertilizer should go up and with a limited domestic supply of nitrogen, CF should be able to increase the price on its inelastic product. This should lead to better margins and better numbers on both the top and bottom lines.
If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, CF may not be your top choice.
