On CAPS, 95% of the 420 members who have rated CVR believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star Staka, tapped CVR as a particularly attractive income opportunity:

Positive:-Has been [hit hard] lately together with other US refiners due to shrinking Brent-WTI spreads and crack spreads. But has one of the lowest cost profiles and a diversification into fertilizers. Both help to stay hugely profitable.-Price has come down from a recent overheating to the 200 day moving average.-Dividend is high and not in immediate danger.-Dividend stocks got punished lately due to increasing US government bond yields. Seems to be irrational for this company. Negative:-Further development of spreads is uncertain. Negative developments can lead to earnings reductions and dividend cuts.
