On CAPS, 96% of the 235 members who have rated Omega Healthcare believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this past week, one of those Fools, All-Star reddingrunner, tapped Omega Healthcare as an attractive income opportunity:

Well-managed REIT with dividends increasing every year. Currently around [a 7% dividend yield]. I'm going overweight financial and real estate in the US, and consumer and utilities in developing markets. Health care is a bit of a gamble because of the politics, but I'm adding this ... based on demographics.

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, Omega Healthcare may not be your top choice.
