    Prepared Remarks:


  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Compass Minerals International, Inc. (NYSE:CMP) is often listed as a miner, but the salt and fertilizer it produces are a bit different than what most investors think of when they hear the word “miner.” That makes Compass something of an odd duck and results in it being off of most investors’ radar screens. A tough 2017 is another net negative. That’s a shame, since it currently sports a yield of more than 4.4%, and the business outlook is improving. Here’s what investors are missing out on with this high-yield stock.
