On CAPS, 95% of the 1,639 members who have rated Frontline believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star Ak66, who is ranked in the top 15% of our community, and lucasjkr.

Late last week, Ak66 highlighted Frontline as a particularly slick opportunity: "This is a speculative play on future volumes and prices of oil. I think it will be very volatile in the next several months but should be a great longer-term play."

In an earlier pitch, lucasjkr expands on why the stock shouldn't tank for too long:

It may not do well in the short term, as there are a glut of tankers. But as more single hulls are taken out of circulation, and more double hull orders are cancelled, demand for its ships should pick up. Past that, they are VERY friendly towards the owners of the company, and are one of the largest oil shippers in the world, with a long history, so it's not as if they don't know how to manage during leaner times.
