On CAPS, 97% of the 759 members who have rated Tsakos believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, smokey67, succinctly summed up the Tsakos bull case for our community:

One of the most modern, diversified and environmentally friendly fleets in the world. One of the largest ice-class operators fleet . Two new vessels in the first two quarters of 2013, a new [LNG] carrier in 2015 . Long term contracts with the world's largest crude companies (a great dividend). All the LNG from good old USA that is in excess and much cheaper than elsewhere in the world will provide more opportunity for such a company. On the way up off its 52 week low, good cash flow looks very positive for this company.

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