On CAPS, 97% of the 221 members who have rated C&J believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, All-Star TMFBlacknGold, succinctly summed up the C&J bull case for our community:

Company should continue to do well with the development of shale fields, although I'm not sure how the market saturation will affect it. Still, with a P/E around 6 and an estimated 5 year growth rate of 20% the company sports a PEG ratio of just 0.32. That's pretty dirty, and enough for me to take a flyer on a company I otherwise know nothing about.

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, C&J may not be your top choice.
