On CAPS, 97% of the 458 members who have rated Heckmann believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Just last week, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Rich Duprey (TMFCop), tapped Heckmann as an attractive bargain opportunity: "The "bad news" is priced in: the state of the nat gas industry, the backlash against fracking, the concerns over groundwater contamination, and looming new regulations. If [Heckmann] doesn't get acquired first, then it goes up from here."
