On CAPS, 94% of the 635 members who have rated Petrobras believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, mpp100, succinctly summed up the Petrobras bull case for our community:

Once oil demand picks back up after the world fixes its collective economic debacle, [Petrobras] will gain. When will that happen? No idea although I think we're seeing some signs of it now. I'll go out on a limb and call for a double in 5 yrs. Collect the dividend while you wait.

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