A couple of weeks ago, one of those bulls, Rogbot, succinctly summed up the opportunity for our community:

Although the P/E ratio is high, this company has a lot of room for growth with their massive new pipeline plans and increasing oil production in Canada. I like them better than [TransCanada] because their pipeline plans are much more politically friendly and simple. I also like the dividend.

If you want market-beating returns, 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 a strong four-star rating, Enbridge may not be your top choice.
