On CAPS, 97% of the 2,224 members who have rated Quality Systems believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of weeks ago, one of those Fools, All-Star BlacknGold, succinctly summed up the bull case of our community:

Quality Systems has a few things going for it. It has a solid dividend, growing revenue and net income, no debt, growing assets, and growing shareholders' equity. I played this one after Mr. Market squeezed out a lot of funny money from the market cap a few months back. While investors are still paying a premium for growth (only $300 million in shareholders' equity with a $1+ billion market cap) it is certainly much less expensive than before. Of course, there is no reason to think it can't be punished further.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Quality Systems may not be your top choice.
