Tomorrow's Monster Stocks?

Stocks that climb to 10 times their original price are a rare breed -- but they're not impossible to find. Especially when you have Fools for friends.

The market's best stocks include companies that have risen hundreds of times in value over the past decade. These aren't penny stocks; they're viable companies that have sound business prospects and achieve phenomenal returns every year. Finding just one or two of these monstrously successful companies can help you establish a winning portfolio.

Stalking the monster
To find tomorrow's monster stocks, we'll enlist our 89,000 investors at Motley Fool CAPS. We've compiled a list of the most successful CAPS players, dubbed All-Stars, whose picks have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled in price. Then we've plucked out some of their recent picks for stocks they find equally promising.

Of course, this is not a list of stocks to buy -- nor, for those monster stocks that our CAPS All-Stars have already found, is it a list of stocks to sell. Just consider them starting points for your own further research.

Circling the wagons
Chosen by Forbes as one of the "100 Fastest-Growing Companies" in 2007, Pioneer Drilling has found acquisitions and international expansion, alongside improving U.S. land drilling prospects, to be the right combination for living up to that designation. Shares in the contract drilling company have risen as much as 50% in the past three months, though it's currently up 16.6% year to date. Natural-gas prices have risen over the same time period, and other drillers, such as Grey Wolf (AMEX: GW  ) , have found their shares in recent demand, too.

CAPS All-Star saunafool, with a 99.72 player rating, noted last November that the drilling segment of the energy industry had been knocked back too steeply to not represent an opportunity to invest:

Drillers have been drilled excessively by the market. Just too cheap. The oil and gas boom is not over.

With more than 300 CAPS players weighing in on Pioneer, 95% have seemingly come to the same conclusion and rate the company to outperform the market. The smart acquisitions it has made have not gone unnoticed, and CAPS player smarsy saw this past month as being key to further growth from this up-and-coming driller: "[Pioneer Drilling] has bought Wedge Companies which will aid them in drilling and streamlining the acquisition of natural gas. With rising oil prices and the ethanol myth, the [price-to-earnings] ratio of 9.59 looks great."

Even with the Federal Reserve easing concerns over a credit collapse -- fears of which had the salutary effect of dropping prices for both oil and gold -- commodities prices remain at record high levels. And those high prices should continue to provide incentives to drill for oil and gas.

A chance for scary growth
Now's the opportunity for you to weigh in on Pioneer Drilling or any of the other stocks these All-Stars see as achieving monster growth. Agree with their views? Tell us on CAPS. If you don't agree, let us know that, too! If you have an opinion, this is the place where your voice counts just as much as everyone else's. Let's hear whether you think these are tomorrow's monster stocks.
