Potash is currently experiencing some cartel-related issues. But CMP is disproportionately affected by this turn of events. Its potash business makes up less than a quarter of its business. Aside from that, its potash is derived from ponds in Utah. The stock market is overreacting and the stock is experiencing a mispricing.

Off a very warm winter should see a rebound in CMP as salt usage kicks back up.

Salt producer, poised to reap benefits from the Great Winter Blizzard of '11, or so says TMF staffers. I tend to agree with them. The P/E for this stock is a little crazy (at 3.53 as of this writing); too rich for my blood, but decent enough to play here in CAPS. We'll just have to see how their orders pan out in the next 3-6 months.

Fairly easy business to understand. I've held this stock off and on for a number of years.

I like this coompany for some of the same reasons I like the aggregates industry(read pitch VMC- Vulcan Materials): their salt sales have a low cost per ton, meaning there is low risk of substitutes, there is minimal foreign competition and the market tends to be low competition due to geographical constraints(although not to the degree of aggregates). This pick is less dependent on the overall economy as well as the majority of sales are to the highway deicing market which is driven by weather conditions. The consumer segment is also relatively large and is very stable in nature helping stabilize profitablity. The portions of the business geared toward chemicals and specialty plant nutrients is a business of which I am less certain because of significant price fluctuations, but which appears to have the potential for growth in end markets and may gain pricing power due to supply constraints. I believe the current pricing represents a good value for a long term investor and should outperform the S&P over time.

Salt and fertilizer. Good combo with a decent dividend.
