Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly CF is a global leading producer of fertilizer, whose stock price has retreated 40% this year. Demand for their product has been hampered during the pandemic as low commodity prices globally caused by pandemic has made farmers reluctant to commit to their normal spending. Their latest earnings reported a loss, when analysts expected a profit. However analysts next year expect earnings growth now of 16% reflected in a 6% increase in sales. A recent acquisition of Terra Industries is expected to help solidify their position in the market while demand in key market regions like India and Brazil already show signs of improvement. It pays a healthy dividend, backed by a 83% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $24, looking to achieve $39 -- 28% upside. Yield 3.93% (Analysts’ price target is $39.00)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We are again recommending ABX, a world leader in gold production, as a TOP PICK. Recently released earnings confirmed our expectation of improving financial circumstance. Earnings came in at more than double that of a year ago, beating analyst expectations by 28%. Management also announced a 12.5% increase in last quarters dividend -- the third increase this year -- and is backed by a 16% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $30 -- looking for an initial target of $46 (35% upside). Yield 1.40% (Analysts’ price target is $46.34)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly When CPB last reported earnings in Sep, EPS of $0.63 exceeded expectations by 18%. The pandemic increased soup demand by 30% and gained them over 6 million new household buyers. As we head into the the next seasonal demand upswing we are recommending them as a TOP PICK, targeting $54. It pays a good dividend, backed by a 26% payout ratio. We would recommend a stop-loss at $38. Yield 2.90% (Analysts’ price target is $53.33)

She doesn't own any gold. This is a good, low cost producer. Global. Where it will be a year from now is predicated on price of gold. Trading at a more attractive valuation than some of the others. If you want exposure to gold, it's a good candidate.

Always had difficulty with the valuation, over 70x forward earnings. She's a growth at a reasonable price manager. It's done well, cloud business growing rapidly. Hold it if you own it. She wouldn't buy at current price levels.

Results today were in line, and they posted an investment gain. Likes the positioning in Asia, a faster growing region. Valuation of PE and price to book value very attractive. Dividend safe at these levels. Next 2-3 years, good capital upside potential. Keep holding.
