On CAPS, 95% of the 764 members who have rated Stratasys believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, dvena, succinctly summed up the Stratasys bull case for our community:

Best in class industrial 3D and additive manufacturing printers in a nascent industry that is getting media attention. The real driver here will not be hobbyists, but mass adoption among manufacturers. Add to that a company with zero debt and you have a winner.

If you want market-beating 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, Stratasys may not be your top choice.
