On CAPS, all 50 of the members who have rated AG Mortgage believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this year, one of those Fools, Trololololo, tapped AG Mortgage as a particularly tasty income selection: "This company appears to offer solid opportunity for the dividend investor. With housing strengthening, and solid financials plus a 12.90% dividend, this REIT looks enticing in the next several years."

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