" Potash Corp, which was previously featured on Insider Monkey, posted sluggish second-quarter earnings results on April 26th. The company reported a quarterly EPS of $0.56, missing the consensus estimate by $0.08. The company's revenue was also down 20.8% on a year-over-year basis.

Potash is the most expensive stock in the fertilizer space trading at 12.3x forward earnings. However, analysts believe this premium multiple is justified due to the company's exceptional growth profile. Potash is projected to grow EPS by 14% next year, giving the stock a 1.35 PEG ratio.

Several hedge funds have initiated positions in Potash during the first-quarter including Paul Tanico at Castlerock Asset Management and Michael Karsch at Karsch Capital Management . The company is scheduled to release their second-quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday, July 26. Analysts expect a strong report with improved guidance on higher commodity and potash prices. Billionaires Richard Chilton , Steve Cohen, and James Dinan are among the top five holders of Potash ( see Dinan's bullish bets ). "
