On CAPS, 98% of the 800 members who have rated Oceaneering believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Jason Moser (TMJMo), succinctly summed up the Oceaneering outperform case for our community:

Just gave this one the green thumb on Investor Beat. Thanks for taking oil down with you gold. But suckers are gonna buy the gold and leave the oil. Don't be one of them. [Oceaneering's] specialized nature with subsea vehicles and umbilicals will play nicely into a robust deepwater market.
