On CAPS, 96% of the 5,004 members who have rated PotashCorp believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, keithelane, tapped PotashCorp as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

Fear over the end of the potash cartel by Uralkali is overblown. [PotashCorp] is financially strong enough to overcome a temporary drop in prices resulting from this, and I expect any significant drop to be just that -- temporary. This stock may take a while to recover, but I believe that they will recover and pay a nice dividend in the meantime.
