Diluted EPS)Conclusion Potash can handle well even if future plans don’t come to fruition. This is a business with high cash flow margins which increase revenue and a relatively low P / E of 14.96. Therefore if potential deals don t work out then the stock will probably perform as it has over the past three years. Bearing in mind that there is a good dividend this would not be a terrible situation. If future deals work out and global demand as predicted increases then the potential is phenomenal. Potash is an OUTPERFORM this being the case. Click here to get our stock picks from CHEAT SHEET now.
