On CAPS, 95% of the 396 members who have rated Solazyme believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, mebrownj, succinctly summed up the Solazyme bull case for our community:

Conversion of existing carbon based feed stock into usable oils is a genius application. This can revolutionize several industries: food, cosmetics, energy. They look like they are at the low point of their S curve and have the relationships going to put them on the steep grade up to technological and business success quite soon.

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