On CAPS, 97% of the 2,172 members who have rated Quality Systems believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, Clint35, listed several of the stock's positives for our community:

33% owned by insiders. A good balance sheet. Good margins. Lots of room left to grow. Looks pretty cheap at this price, it's only [roughly $1.30] above its 52 week low. Plus a 2.32% yield.

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Quality Systems may not be your top choice.
