On CAPS, 95% of the 190 members who have rated Pioneer believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, All-Star jwray01, succinctly summed up the Pioneer bull case for our community:

Consistently high profit margin and very low P/E. The margin of safety is strong with this one. The price of crude oil can drop by half and they'd still make a profit. But it's more likely to rise in the long run.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Pioneer may not be your top choice.
