On CAPS, 99% of the 72 members who have rated RPX believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those bulls, All-Star sikiliza, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Small, well positioned to take advantage of the patent wave. Management has years of experience and this is a strong fundamentals, growth story that could do really well in the coming years. Not enough past data to carry out any meaningful cashflow valuation but [operating cash flow] generation is up [roughly 4 times] in the last 4 years.

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 a strong four-star rating, RPX may not be your top choice.
