BUY: CF IND HLDGS INC (CF) Rating: 2
Start Price: $108.56
Points: +20.89
Created: 03/28/2008

Given the spring planting season, my timing may be great or not so great on adding it.

Start Price: $18.85
Points: +8.11
Created: 03/28/2008
This railroad recently upped guidance for the next few years. The strong agricultural sector and bullish commodities environment bodes well for railroads. Plus, railroads have competitive advantages over trucking companies for long-haul freight.
