On CAPS, 97.5% of the 122 members who have rated CVR believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star TMFDeej, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community, and golfinstocks.
Late last month, TMFDeej tapped CVR as an enticing young offering: "This is the first IPO that I've wanted to get into in a long time. ... What's not to like about a spun-off, nitrogen fertilizer producer that plans to pay a massive dividend in an era of high food prices?"
Currently, CVR even boasts a balance sheet with roughly $43 million in cash and no debt. Meanwhile, listed competitors Agrium, CF, and Potash Corp sport debt-to-equity ratios of 0.5, 0.3, and 0.8 respectively.
CAPS member golfinstocks expands on the CVR outperform case:
[T]hey are the only company in N. America that makes the fertilizer from coke or residue from the refinery side of their plant while others are paying for fuel to make it. ... [T]hey sell every last bit of fertilizer they make. In the near future they are going to double their size on the fertilizer side and continue to sell every bit they make. If this deal isnt sweet enough they are expecting dividends of $2 a share.
