On CAPS, 94% of the 5,236 members who have rated BP believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, bobbyabull, tapped BP as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

We may not love BP with the Gulf oil spill still somewhat fresh in our minds, but time heals all wounds. The worst is behind them but the stock hasn't recovered yet. Right now you've got a current P/E of 6 with a sustainable [dividend yield] of 5%. Why wouldn't you add a little BP to your portfolio at these levels -- even if you look it as a speculative play? (Remember S&P 676 at the peak of Subprime? That was only a few years ago. Where are we now?)
