On CAPS, 91% of the 91 members who have rated Velti believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, ScalaAnalyst, touched on the tailwinds working in Velti's favor:

This company engages in mobile marketing. So all those people that have iPhone or iPad or similar equipment are receiving advertising to visit local markets in the areas that they are in. ... Twitter, Facebook and other social media is how news travels. This company will be selling advertising to people who are connected this way. ... Insiders hold 11% so people at the helm are working to steer this company away from impeding storms and will seek a sustained direction to a profitable horizon. The price to book for this stock is looking really good. Also the debt to equity ratio is real nice, which makes it appealing for a larger suitor. I try to invest in small stock at they always seem to have a better chance of a potential buyout offer in the near future, which would be windfall that I could live with.

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, Velti may not be your top choice.

If that's the case, we might have a better idea for you. Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner has achieved gains of more than 120% in our Stock Advisor service since it launched in March 2002. Compare that to the S&P 500's return of 29% over that same time frame. David has managed to trounce the market by always being on the lookout for revolutionary stocks and recommending them before Wall Street catches on to their disruptive potential.
