On CAPS, 95% of the 1,021 members who have rated Pengrowth believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, TheAmerican7676, tapped Pengrowth as a particularly attractive income opportunity:

Oversold overlooked paying monthly dividend. [S]eeing a 20-30 percent return on this company within the year is no far cry. This is a gift. Traders and institutions move markets and this company appears to be holding over [$5 per share] with oil which had a rally.

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