Stocks that climb to 10 times their original price are a rare breed -- but they're not impossible to find. Especially when you have Fools for friends.

The market's best stocks include companies that have risen hundreds of times in value over the past decade. These aren't penny stocks; they're viable companies with sound business prospects, achieving phenomenal returns every year. Finding just one or two of these monstrously successful firms can help you establish a winning portfolio.

Ashes to ashes
There's no small consensus that potash production seems to be in a bit of a boom time, and perhaps even bordering on mania. While the big players have been grabbing most of the headlines, new "entrepreneurial" potash miner Intrepid Potash has been working to make inroads on their turf. While the stock has lost some of its recent gains, CAPS investors like All-Star FRINEDOFFOXY simply see demand eventually overcoming the risks inherent in the stock.

A recent IPO in the high growth ag fertilizer arena. Both IPO status and debt level make this a higher risk investment. But, product demand & [Intrepid Potash's] ability to feed that demand also offers high growth potential.

No joy in soy
Rising commodities prices have been having their way with a number of industries, and while energy has usually been on the giving end, some providers that rely on commodities themselves for their inputs have been feeling the heat, too. Gushan Environmental Energy, which uses vegetable oil waste and used cooking oil to develop biofuels, has still managed to maintain impressive profitability. As a result, investors like CAPS player greenwave3 finds its position in the Chinese market to be enviable.

Largest biodiesel capacity and production in China. Huge proportion of their inputs are waste products, which leaves their margins intact (think - turning garbage into gold). The Chinese government requires waste oils to be properly recovered and recycled... [Gushan] is a welcome buyer. Production capacities at existing plants are between 100%-115%... They are also building more plants, two of which will come online later this year. And, the kicker? The Chinese government just announced that they are raising fuel prices... Higher prices for diesel means that much more in the pockets of [Gushan] and its shareholders.

A chance for scary growth
