Stocks climbing to 10 times their original price are rare breeds -- 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 by taking advantage of the market's weaknesses. These aren't penny stocks; they're viable companies with sound business prospects that are achieving phenomenal returns. Finding just one or two of these monstrously successful firms can help you establish a winning portfolio.

Stalking the monster
To find tomorrow's winners, we've enlisted the help of more than 170,000 monster 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 plucked out some of their recent picks for stocks they find equally promising.

Recent Stock Pick

CAPS Rating (out of 5)




Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ)





Open Table (Nasdaq: OPEN)




BBVA Provida


Rosetta Resources (Nasdaq: ROSE)


Score is how many percentage points that pick is beating the S&P 500.

Of course, this is not a list of stocks to buy -- or, for those monster stocks that our CAPS All-Stars have already found, sell. Just consider them starting points for your own further research of extreme buying opportunities.

In search of bigfoot
It doesn't happen very often, but when it does it's a doozy. Of course I'm talking about the bug inside Intel's Sandy Bridge chipset that degrades the performance of storage devices. At times like this, "Intel Inside" can be invidious.

The ramifications of Intel's rush to market to beat Advanced Micro Devices' (NYSE: AMD) Fusion chips is a shockwave rippling out from the epicenter being felt by computer makers everywhere. Hewlett-Packard was forced to cancel a major business notebook presentation it had scheduled for next week. NEC will delay four new models it had planned to debut. Dell (Nasdaq: DELL) also has at least four products imperiled by the flaw.

With Hewlett-Packard still dealing with the fallout over the Mark Hurd fiasco, investors will need to digest this new setback. Shares had been performing admirably so far this year, early though it is. The stock is up 10% for January and 21% from its low point last August. The CAPS community remains solidly behind the tech giant with 93% of the nearly 3,500 members rating it believing it will outperform the market. Head over to the Hewlett-Packard CAPS page and let us know if this investment still computes.

A table for two
Bringing diners in the door for a fee during a recession is going to buy you loyalty, if not the undying adulation of restaurateurs. Online reservation service OpenTable is doing just that with its full-service, higher end clientele, a niche segment that bore the brunt of the decline in eating out these past few years. Analysts are expecting North American revenues to rise 27% annually over the next five years while internationally OpenTable will serve up 64% growth rates.

Casual dining eateries such as Brinker International and Darden (NYSE: DRI) may be the ones to avoid if services like Groupon nibble away at margins. Yet while they may end up eating their young to stay competitive, OpenTable isn't necessarily a tasty morsel at these valuations: It goes for more than 160 times earnings estimates as shares have tripled over the past year.

Those are some heady numbers, but CAPS member XPVision thinks there's still a seat at the table because of the incentives the service has built in.

I am a Las Vegas Concierge and opentable is the source of ALL concierge groups in hotels ( for dinner reservations because we get money for the restaurants listed! Not to mention EVERY SINGLE concierge manager creates these logins for its staff! Yes, it is used constantly. OUTPERFORM LONG TERM.

Inflating values
Domestic oil and gas producer Rosetta Resources has committed itself to developing its Eagle Ford Gates Ranch project, spending $325 million of a $360 million capital budget, or 90% of the total there. Like others before it including SandRidge Energy (NYSE: SD), Rosetta has shifted its asset portfolio from gas to oil, and in the process boosted production volumes while creating double-digit reserve growth.

Despite shares rising 65% over the past three months, the CAPS community believes there is still plenty of opportunity to strike it rich here, with 94% rating the energy play to outperform the broad market averages.

Add Rosetta to your watchlist, then head over to the Rosetta Resources CAPS page and drill down for further insights on its future.
