Over on CAPS, fully 545 of the 556 All-Star players who have rated Suncor -- 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These All-Star bulls include kenhannan and DemonDoug, both of whom are ranked in the top 5% of our community.

In April 2007, kenhannan argued that "as oil prices rise, [Suncor] will increase in value, as they have enormous reserves in the oil sands in Alberta. The company is well run, and will do well over the next several years."

A pitch later in the year by DemonDoug -- the 12th-ranked player in all of CAPS -- expanded on that bullish line of reasoning:

I've marked this as a top pick. Suncor is the best company to invest in Canada's oil sands. As long as oil is still needed (and I believe it definitely will be over the next 100 years), Suncor has the positioning, the management, and has shown superb transparency and honesty, with growing reserves, to outperform the overall market in almost any year. If someone asked me what is the one stock to own, this would be it.
