On CAPS, 97% of the 2,225 members who have rated Devon believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, TMFrank, highlighted Devon as a bargain opportunity worth looking into: "Fairly cheap on a [price-to-book value] basis and a great balance sheet. Add in the potential for a continued rebound in Nat Gas prices, which would provide a decent catalyst, and this is good enough for a [CAPS] pick."
