On CAPS, 93% of the 198 members who have rated Clean Energy believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, johnstrobel, succinctly summed up the bull case of our community:

I believe alternative fuels could be the boom of the next decade. [Clean Energy] is developing the America's Natural Gas Highway to provide less expensive fuel options, primarily for trucks and transportation. Other companies like [Westport Innovations (NASDAQ: WPRT  ) and [Cummins (NYSE: CMI  ) ], which I also own in my investment portfolio have natural gas engines available. Profitability of the company has been sporadic but revenues are increasing and if the ANGH develops as anticipated, it should be very profitable and the stock could be worth $30/share by 2014.

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