••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on CF Industries Holdings Inc

Longleaf Partners Comments on CF Industries - Apr 15, 2016

We sold three companies in the quarter and initiated a small position in nitrogen fertilizer manufacturer and distributor CF Industries (NYSE:CF), which offered a more discounted way to increase our stake in OCI post deal. CF CEO Tony Will is buying back discounted shares, and OCI CEO Nassef Sawiris will be the largest CF shareholder and join the board when the deal closes.



From Longleaf Partners' International Fund first quarter 2016 letter.
