On CAPS, 96% of the 656 members who have rated Petrobras Argentina believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star Staka, offered a balance take on the Petrobras Argentina opportunity:

Positive:
-You can buy them for half the tangible book value due to fears of nationalization.
-Cash flow is solid. Debt is low.

Negative:
-Nationalization might happen if the Argentine goverment gets even more desperate. At some point they should understand the idiocy of all that but you never know, they are politicians.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Petrobras Argentina may not be your top choice.
