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

The market's best stocks include companies that have risen dozens of times in value over the past decade. These aren't penny stocks; they're viable companies with sound business prospects, achieving 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 winners, we'll enlist the more than 120,000 trackers at Motley Fool CAPS. We've compiled a list of the most successful CAPS members, dubbed All-Stars, whose picks have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled in price. Then we've selected some of their recent picks for stocks they find equally promising.

In search of Bigfoot
Pity the Chesapeake Energy Fools who got caught in the market's downdraft and faced a margin call. Oh, not their own, but rather that of CEO Aubrey McClendon, who had to dump his portfolio of Chesapeake stock to pay his tab. That caused shares of Chesapeake Energy to dive. No matter, the new lower price gives investors the opportunity to buy into the country's largest natural gas producer on the cheap. CAPS member tedamerica points out that not only has Chesapeake gotten a new line of credit, but McClendon -- who quickly became the poster child for what can happen when you buy on margin -- has vowed to rebuild his position in his company.

The largest natural gas supplier in America. A new line of credit. Aubrey McClendon indicated he intends to rebuild his share loss. We NEED natural gas and in time we might need it more for our automobiles.

Mix equal parts market meltdown and plummeting oil prices and it's no wonder industrial companies that take part in oil and gas services have been crushed. The stock prices of not only Fluor, but also McDermott (NYSE:MDR) and Foster Wheeler (NASDAQ:FWLT), have been cut off at the knees. But CAPS member falcon2382 doesn't see Fluor -- one of the world's largest engineering, construction, and maintenance companies -- as damaged. Rather, it's priced as if it's in the bargain basement.

Wow what a steal! ... Price has been smashed because of Fluor's association with residential and commercial construction ...

Fluor will surely get a great deal of future U.S. and China infrastructure projects. In the U.S. especially, infrastructure will not only be looked to as an economic stimulus package, but it is actually severely needed. We are talking about 1.8 or so Trillion dollars worth of work that is needed across the country---and that is not even taking into consideration new and alternative energy projects that its Power segment will have access to.

You can see falcon2382's full pitch and analysis of the numbers on Fluor's CAPS page.
