On CAPS, 97% of the 750 members who have rated Guangshen believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those bulls, Frycup, tapped Guangshen as a particularly tangible income opportunity: "Great buy in point in low $14's. Easily able to handle the dividend payment. Feeling a hangover along with other Chinese stocks. This is a company with hard assets so not concerned about the massive fraud that we've seen in others."

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 its five-star rating, Guangshen may not be your top choice.
