On CAPS, 72% of the 544 members who have rated Key Energy believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, drummermcjohn, tapped Key Energy as a particularly solid bargain opportunity:

Key Energy (KEG) still hovers around its lowest point in the past 52 week period. KEG's history in securing contracts and delivering innovative products to a lucratively funded oil industry has much to do with its steady performance over a 20 year period! After falling from $9 earlier this financial year, I think KEG is poised to climb back to $9 by this next winter.  

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Key Energy may not be your top choice.
