On CAPS, 94% of the 82 members who have rated Boingo believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those Fools, aardvestor, highlighted Boingo's recent earnings-miss as a particularly tempting bargain opportunity:

This company missed earnings by 1 cent ... triggering a downgrade from Deutsche Bank and a 24% price drop. This was almost certainly an overreaction. While Boingo's prospects don't look as rosy as they did before the Q2 report, this is still a profitable, growing company with plenty of cash, very little debt, a solid business plan, and management with a track record of success.

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, Boingo may not be your top choice.
