Over on CAPS, fully 389 of the 435 members who have rated Dominion -- some 89% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These Foolish bulls include etfman and ChazzReinhold.

Two weeks ago, etfman noted that Dominion "is growing at 10% a year, pays a dividend over 4.5%, and is starting to go green. It is a great infrastructure play. It has pipelines, storage, a LNG terminal, and nuclear power plants."

In a pitch from two days earlier, ChazzReinhold takes a different approach, highlighting the stock as an intriguing, undervalued asset play:

Dominion owns the drilling rights to approximately 600-800 thousand acres of the Marcellus Shale, which is loaded with natural gas. They recently assigned the rights to drill on approximately 115 million acres to Antero Resources for $347 million ($205 million after tax). As part of that deal, Dominion will receive a 7.5% royalty on future natural gas production from the assigned acreage. The Marcellus Shale is luring some of the country's largest gas producers to Pennsylvania. Thanks to a state Supreme Court decision six years ago, Pennsylvania is now one of the biggest natural-gas producing states , if not the biggest , that does not tax the methane sucked from beneath its ground. However, the state legislature is heavily considering a natural gas tax. Evidence of the value that lies within the Marcellus Shale.
