Some stocks I'm following for 2013:

Fertilizer company. Recently it has been both much lower and much higher than current prices. Payout ratio around 100% of current income so expect the generous 7.7% dividend ratio to drop a bit. Earnings are depressed due to a depressed world economy.

My assessment, expect nothing over the short term. Probably good upside potential in the long-run.

US based rare earth elements company. Possibly a huge upside potential if the Chinese pull back on their exports. On the other hand if government investment in wind-turbines slacken, that could keep the market depressed.

Alcoa aluminum. I expect poor returns in the short run (depressed world economy) with a rapid increase in earnings and stock price when the world economy recovers.

Gold, copper, and other metals. I have mixed feelings about this. I think gold prices are ridiculously high. However, I expect the prices of many of their other metals to recover when the economy recovers.

Anyway, I thought I'd share some of the companies I've begun to investigate.

I actually already own some TNH (bought at a much lower price). I'm investigating whether to buy more.

Ditto AA.

I'm investigating MCP and FCX for an initial purchase.
