Over on CAPS, fully 1,408 of the 1,464 members who have rated Suncor -- or 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star trader4277, who is ranked in the top 3% of our community, and BinaryChoice.

In December, trader4277 wrote that Suncor "is one of the big players in the Alberta Oil Sands. The amount of recoverable oil in this region is staggering. No drilling uncertainty. Location next door to the biggest oil market in the world will make Suncor a lot of money."

In a more recent pitch from two weeks ago, BinaryChoice echoes that bullish sentiment:

Oil prices are low now and will remain so through the end of 2009 most likely, but with the rising demand in Asia and Africa and the decreasing production should drive up costs. Suncor has investments in Canadian oilsands which are currently the second largest oil reserves in the world.
