On CAPS, 96% of the 4,270 members who have rated Chevron believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier today, one of those bulls, rtc76, succinctly summed up the Chevron bull case for our community:

Even if the Lago Agrio judgment ends up wiping out the full $19 billion of book value, it's still undervalued with a margin of safety if it can maintain a similar cash flow for the next few years. There are enough variables, though, such as difficulty in replacing reserves, the potential for a substantial drop in oil demand due to new supply and less than expected consumption growth in India or China, to warrant a very watchful eye over the next few years.
