On CAPS, 94% of the 244 members who have rated Telecom Argentina believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, moepitman, succinctly summed up the Telecom Argentina bull case for our community:

A good value price at around $12, with a solid track record of revenue growth, earnings growth, and a nice dividend. Argentina has one of the highest rates of mobile phone ownership in the world, and Telecom Argentina has proven over time that it can compete successfully.

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

If that's the case, you should check out the latest pick by Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner. He's achieved gains of more than 120% in our Stock Advisor service since it launched in March 2002. Compare that to the S&P 500's return of 29% over that same time frame. David has managed to trounce the market by always being on the lookout for revolutionary stocks and recommending them before Wall Street catches on to their disruptive potential.
