On CAPS, 92% of the 959 members who have rated Zipcar believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, TMFJLo, touched on several of the stock's positives: "Zipcar is changing the way that people consider transportation, capitalizing on the average 23 hours a day that car owners don't drive their car. They've got the brand, top-tier management, close relationships with public and private sector partners, and they're pouring money into R&D that'll work wonders down the road."

If you want market-thumping 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, Zipcar may not be your top choice.
