Every day, the sun rises on Wall Street, and a plethora of professional analysts wake to issue new opinions on stocks. Here at the Fool, we use our "This Just In" column to examine some of these picks-- and the track records of the firms behind them -- so individuals can make better investing decisions.

In addition to following professional banks, anyone can use Motley Fool CAPS to monitor the collective opinions of more than 130,000 members, many of whom demonstrate better investing insight than published analysts do.

More top-performing CAPS members are turning bullish on Huntsman (NYSE:HUN) these days, enough to upgrade it from a two-star rank all the way to five stars in less than six months. Bulls have been flocking to Huntsman, and many of the 343 members rating the chemical maker have offered analysis and commentary explaining the recent optimism.

Pullbacks in core industries like auto manufacturing and construction have caused a drop in demand for products from chemical makers such as Huntsman, Dow Chemical (NYSE:DOW), and DuPont (NYSE:DD) and sent each scrambling to cope with the situation. Huntsman doesn't even want to venture down the 2009 guidance road, as it expects continued pressure this year.

But the $1 billion settlement the company received from last year's failed Hexion merger will provide support through the downturn, and there may be more money to come. Huntsman is still pursuing a legal case against Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank for declining to fund the merger.

While Dow Chemical is struggling under post-acquisition debt, Huntsman took the proactive approach of negotiating easier terms on its still untapped $650 million credit facility. While retooling debt agreements is becoming more common these days, Huntsman's case is not a desperate one -- like it has been for shippers TBS International (NASDAQ:TBSI) and Genco Shipping (NYSE:GNK), which have also amended their debt covenants. Huntsman is preparing now in case the economic glut goes longer than expected.

While dividend cuts are coming even from much larger firms such as Teck Cominco (NYSE:TCK) and Weyerhaeuser (NYSE:WY), Huntsman has so far maintained its payout, which is currently yielding 8.9%. And despite being dissed by Jim Cramer, the company still has many CAPS members who remain bullish.

To see what the very best CAPS analysts are saying now about Huntsman -- as well as other winning stocks they are picking -- head on over to CAPS and have a look.
