Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star PsychoDr, succinctly summed up the CVR bull case for our community:

I like the potential of this company. Their stock took a bit of a hit recently, but it had nothing to do with fundamentals. In fact recent earnings were depressed as company built out capacity to refine more [urea ammonium nitrate] than they had in the past. This is important because [urea ammonium nitrate] is the next step in fertilizer production and has significantly higher profit margin. I also like their dividend policy which I will leave for you to research.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, CVR may not be your top choice.
