On CAPS, 98% of the 53 members who have rated LinnCo believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star TMFmd19, succinctly summed up the LinnCo bull case for our community:

One of the driving forces behind the LinnCo IPO was that the company sees a very robust acquisition market over the next two years. Because of the price of natural gas is low, many of its drilling peers are running out of options to fund ambitious drilling programs. With selling more mature assets one of the only remaining options, Linn can really go on the offensive.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, LinnCo may not be your top choice.
