On CAPS, 97% of the 527 members who have rated BreitBurn believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, TMFmd19, succinctly summed up BreitBurn bull case for our community:

Taking everything together, the company has enough reserves to secure its current distribution of more than 9% for years to come. The company also has a nice inventory of future organic growth projects as well as the financial flexibly to continue to acquire additional reserves. This has given management the confidence to target a 5% annual distribution increase. When you add it all up, BreitBurn has the solid foundation you want as an income seeking investor.

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