On CAPS, 98% of the 290 members who have rated El Paso Pipeline believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, MMcCabeNMC, succinctly summed up the El Paso Pipeline bull case for our community:

Natural gas has been cheap, so demand is high. Supply continues to increase, keeping prices low. So, who makes money as more users switch to natural gas? Pipeline companies are, in my opinion, a good bet. This firm has sound financials, and should be well positioned to take advantage of the continued boom in natural gas demand.

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