On CAPS, 98% of the 1,078 members who have rated Denbury believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, ASeaDragon, touched on the tailwinds working in Denbury's favor:

The long-term oil and gas trend is clearly toward more consumption. Federal energy consumption estimates show global consumption increases, driven by Chinese and Indian industrialization. DNR is a play on an undervalued company in a sector that will all be moved by the same tide of demand; DNR will perform well because its expectation for outrageous success is not yet priced into the shares.

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Denbury may not be your top choice.
