On CAPS, 97% of the 148 members who have rated BofI believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star BlazerMania, succinctly summed up the BofI bull case for our community:

Excellent loan portfolio, one of the best I've ever seen. Lean cost structure without the headache of handling cash and managing retail branches. Strong deposit growth will fuel continued high-quality loan growth, and at only $400 million market cap there is a long way for this one to run.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, BofI may not be your top choice.
