On CAPS, 93% of the 383 members who have rated Liquidity Services believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, All-Star bartleyrc, tapped Liquidity Services as a particularly timely growth opportunity:

Online auction business will never stop in the foreseeable future... the primary challenge will be increasing competition, but obviously this company has a strong foothold in its market. Furthermore, this price is a good buy for the long term because it is right after its normal 6 month profit-taking sell-off pattern.

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