On CAPS, 97% of the 2,219 members who have rated Quality Systems believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last month, one of those Fools, All-Star BuffettJunior1, tapped Quality Systems as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

This is an outstanding business trading at an extremely low valuation. The company operates in an industry that will continue to grow at a rapid rate over the next couple of decades. While I may not know what will happen over the next few quarters, over the long run well positioned companies in this industry (such as QSII) will almost certainly do very well. This is one of the rare stocks that I would give an A rating to.

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, Quality Systems may not be your top choice.
