On CAPS, 91% of the 317 members who have rated Kaiser believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

One of the best managed (if not the best managed) companies in the sector. Aluminum manufacturers as a whole are looking for about a 9% bump in demand, which should impact profits favorably. U.S. commercial aerospace ... has huge backlog of aluminum planes to pump out and is ramping up production considerably. No hiccup in the recovery will stop this bump in AL demand.

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