What: Shares of fuel services expert World Fuel Services
So what: The company's fourth-quarter report easily bludgeoned analyst estimates, driven by strength in its land-based services. The stock has returned a dividend-adjusted 58% over the last year and a mindblowing 1,840% in the last decade.
Now what: Even after all those tremendous gains, fellow Fool Rex Moore still sees a deep value in this stock. World Fuel's margins are vanishingly thin, but the company processes a massive and growing volume of business, which adds up to tremendous profits. If the company could widen those margins just a little bit, the potential gains would be epic.
