On CAPS, 93% of the 56 members who have rated Renewable Energy believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, adamlevy, succinctly summed up the Renewable Energy bull case for our community:

A leader in the growing industry of advanced biofuels and renewable energy. The Obama administration is a big proponent of alternative fuel sources and RFS2 and other government programs should drive demand further for the company's products. Currently trades at an excellent P/B of 0.5. It has positive ROA and is improving its efficiency. One of the few competitors with positive operating cash flow exceeding net income, which means it can improve its debt position, which it has done. It also has good, positive, margins, showing it can be profitable in a highly competitive industry.

If you want market-thumping returns, 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 a strong four-star rating, Renewable Energy may not be your top choice.
