On CAPS, 97% of the 1,742 members who have rated Clean Energy believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, LouPerna, succinctly summed up the Clean Energy bull case for our community:

With [natural gas] prices low and with major portions of the Natural Gas Hwy complete, industry has a compelling reason to switch to natural gas. This should lead to major revenue and profit increases over the next few years. The wide moat should discourage competition

Of course, that short pitch doesn't even come close to telling the entire story for Clean Energy. You're in luck, though. The Fool's brand-new premium report on Clean Energy looks at all sides of one of the most compelling energy plays in the market.
