On CAPS, 96% of the 874 members who have rated EOG believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

Best in peer group on credit rating, cost of debt, and overhead costs. Prescient in responsiveness to environmental concerns raised by shareholders, which will have long-term financial implications. Poised to come out ahead.

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