On CAPS, 97% of the 58 members who have rated FutureFuel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, neocolonialist, succinctly summed up the FutureFuel bull case for our community:

"P/E is reasonable at < 15, they have no debt, they are amazingly diversified with a whole chemical side of the house (weed killer, detergent packet chemicals, etc), strong customers like Procter & Gamble , they have a great dividend, and lots of cash for their size. What's not to like?"

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