On CAPS, 97% of the 520 members who have rated Heckmann believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, All-Star NHWeston102, succinctly summed up the Heckmann bull case for our community:

Under-the-radar water purification and waste cleaning company with lots of potential. Gas companies engaged in fracking use their services, and [Heckmann] will grow along with this unorthodox extraction process. Deep pockets and unique services, they're building an invaluable moat.

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