Just yesterday, one of those Fools, bashnaran, succinctly summed up the Nuverra bull case for our cmmunity:

Regardless of whether we believe fracking is environmentally sound or not, it is the way the industry is progressing. With a new fracking operation being set up in NYC and all over the [world], this is the company that works to clean up the image of fracking. This company is set to grow larger because of the inevitable trend of the oil industry toward fracking.

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