On CAPS, 86%of the 132 members who have rated PC Connection believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, hend6, offered a cautiously bullish take on PC Connection:

Income is a little low, but improving, with net profit as a percentage of sales in the upper [1%] range. Balance sheet is very strong though, with relatively good liquidity and the ability to pay all of their debt with current assets. Technology intermediaries should have room to grow as markets continually expand. No dividend though and treasury stock signals some internal uncertainty. Will reevaluate in a year.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, PC Connection may not be your top choice.
