On CAPS, 97% of the 1,360 members who have rated Teck believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Chemdawg, tapped Teck as a timely bargain opportunity:

[H]igh grade metallurgical coal is what you want and that is what [Teck] has ... and they dont have any in the [A]ppalachian montains ... one of the most difficult and expensive places to mine coal. [T]his should be a good price point for a company poised to come of this low price war with extra ammo ... others like [CONSOL Energy] and [Patriot Coal] face significantly harder roads ahead of them.

If you want market-thumping 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, Teck may not be your top choice.
