On CAPS, 95% of the 320 members who have rated SXC believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star dvena, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Pharmacy Benefit Management is the wave of the future and [SXC] is at the forefront. They are in the sweet spot. They are the up and comer in an industry dominated by old-school rules. ... By providing a better price, better service and transparency, they have carved out a [niche] for themselves and tend to profit greatly as firms look to save money. They also have the silver tsunami of the baby boomers retiring in mass to drive future business opportunties.

If you want to retire rich, 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, SXC may not be your top choice.
