On CAPS, all 12 of the members who have rated CVR Refining believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier today, one of those Fools, JFJ5000, listed several of the stock's positives for our community: "Massive dividend, big money insider buying at IPO, parent company has history of strong management and big gains, diversified client base, vertically integrated infrastructure, and primed to rake in potentially huge oil/shale refining profits in the near future ... need I say anything more?"

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