On CAPS, 98% of the 498 members who have rated ROIC believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, JoeArizona, succinctly summed up the ROIC bull case for our community:

I'm in this one for the dividend, but the potential for growth is pretty good, too. The real estate meltdown is still in the early stages of cleanup, and there are tons of opportunities out there. ROIC is run by smart people with money to invest and a track record of success. I figure they'll keep finding opportunities that will pay off big in the next few years. 

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