On CAPS, 97% of the 775 members who have rated Denbury believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include jmo72.

In a pitch from three weeks ago, jmo72 made a bullish case for Denbury:

Will oil be more expensive five years from now? I would venture a guess that it will be. [Denbury] also has the CO2 to tap a lot of untappable "leftovers", and this should really serve the company's bottom line down the road as oil becomes tougher to access. A lot will depend on how they can manage their debt down the line as they are currently making some key acquisitions in order to build presence.
