Compass Minerals is a leading chemical company that specializes in fertilizers and salts. While it's clearly not time to be watering the garden, Kansas-based Compass is seeing brisk business from its de-icing and salt products thanks to the wintry weather.
Compass has grown its earnings per share dramatically across the last few quarters and is looking to share more of those profits with shareholders. On Feb. 8, the company raised its quarterly dividend by 10% to 39 cents per share, payable March 15 to shareholders of record as of March 1. This stock is going strong right now and should see continued success from the winter weather.
