CF Industries Shares Grew 75% Last Year. And Now?

This week I'm seeking a high-yield and growing stock from the basic materials sector. 

That materials sector includes thirteen industries all related to mining, making and delivering essential commodities. The industries are: agricultural inputs; aluminum; building materials; chemicals; coal; copper; industrial metals and minerals; paper; silver; specialty chemicals; steel.

Today I'm reviewing a large-cap agricultural inputs firm named CF Industries Holdings, Inc. It's trading ticker symbol is CF.

CF Industries Holdings Inc is a leading producer and distributor of nitrogen fertilizers. The company operates various nitrogen facilities in America UK, and Canada. It primarily serves the international agriculture sector.

The company operates through Ammonia, Granular Urea, UAN, AN, and Other segments. Its principal nitrogen fertilizer products include ammonia, granular urea, urea ammonium nitrate, and ammonium nitrate. 

The company also offers diesel exhaust fluid, urea liquor, nitric acid, and aqua ammonia, as well as compound fertilizer products with nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. 

It offers products primarily to cooperatives, independent fertilizer distributors, farmers, and industrial users. 

CF Industries Holdings, Inc. was founded in 1946 and is headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund likeCF Industries Holdings, Inc. (CF): 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, four more keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

But those first three primary keys, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

CF Price

CF's price per share was $51.53 at yesterday's market close. A year ago its price was $28.99 for a gain of $22.54 per share.  

Assuming CF's price will trade in the range of $40 to $75 next year, perhaps about half that $22.50 gain could repeat in the coming year and move CF's current $51.53 price to $63 by the last day of August, 2019.
