On CAPS, 97% of the 3,553 members who have rated China Mobile believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, WealthLift, succinctly summed up the China Mobile opportunity for our community:

Even if the company doesn't reach a deal with Apple, it is still sitting on 660 million subscribers in a country that has seen its mobile phone demand skyrocket in 2012. Oh, and did we mentioned it is chronically undervalued? GET IN THIS NOW; it has $75-$80 upside.

If you want market-beating returns, 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, China Mobile may not be your top choice.
