On CAPS, 96% of the 249 members who have rated Omega Healthcare believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, AOverlord, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

With an aging and longer living population in America, this stock should remain a steady performer. I don't [expect] the stock price to [rise] substantially, but the price won't fall much either, and the dividend should continue to rise.

If you want market-topping 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, Omega Healthcare may not be your top choice.
