On CAPS, 96% of the 1,673 members who have rated Suncor believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Earlier this month, one of those bulls, All-Star jrich0591, highlighted several of Suncor's positives:

Who knows what 2012 will bring, however, [Suncor] is the largest and best positioned integrated oil and gas company in Canada. One of the major oilsands players. Strong, experienced management team, with the current CFO to take over the top job when the affable Ron George retires in May/June. "Oily" in nature a long-term diversified play with prospects for capital appreciation and dividend growth.

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its four-star rating, Suncor may not be your top choice.
