On CAPS, 93% of the 196 members who have rated Ingram Micro believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

This week, one of those Fools, XMFConnor, tapped Ingram Micro as a particularly clear bargain opportunity:

Largest Net/Net in the market. Wholesaler of electronic products. Trades at less than 4X EBITDA, generated $277 mm in earnings [trailing-12-month], which is less than 10X P/E. Not too complicated here. Net/net that is profitable and growing value. Outperform.

If you want market-thumping returns, 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, Ingram Micro may not be your top choice.
