Just last week, one of those Fools, adilimani, succinctly summed up the Chevron bull case for our community: "Undervalued stock due to bad economy and low oil prices. However, they are so diversified and are a part of almost every single market related to energy, oil, transportation, purification etc. Good dividend too."
If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Chevron may not be your top choice.
