We consider transport properties of single-wall metallic carbon nanotubes weakly coupled to external leads. In particular, we analyze the conductance and shot noise of nanotubes coupled to nonmagnetic leads and show that the shot noise may become super-Poissonian depending on the ground state of the nanotube. In addition, we also show that when the nanotube is coupled to one ferromagnetic and one nonmagnetic lead, it can operate as a gate-controlled spin diode.
