On CAPS, 97% of the 555 members who have rated Cellcom believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Late last month, one of those Fools, IUB620, succinctly summed up the Cellcom bull case for our community: "Today it is Israel's leading cellular provider. It has over 3 million subscribers. The company is profitable and issues regular dividends. [Cellcom] is one of the more stable technology stocks."

However, the company recently cut its second-quarter dividend payment, and future payments will also be under review.

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, Cellcom may not be your top choice.
