On CAPS, 97% of the 2,240 members who have rated Devon believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Micah Robinson (TMFRedRaider), succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community: "Devon's management has proven its dedication on shareholder value. Though their change of emphasis on higher-margin liquids may seem late, I think Devon still has room to run."
