On CAPS, 99% of the 399 members who have rated Kinder Morgan believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, Stockblocked, touched on the tailwinds working in Kinder Morgan's favor: "Natural gas prices are on the rise again, which should see a huge spike in production soon ... and by extension, royalties. I also believe that we will soon see a rising number of natural gas powered vehicles that will increase demand as well as capacity."

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