On CAPS, 98% of the 139 members who have rated Triangle believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, sdffd, succinctly summed up the Triangle bull case for our community:

I love the dividend and it's a well managed company with a [return on equity] of [15%]. This is like a private equity ETF. You can go to their website and look at all of the companies that they own. Their holdings are well diversified and they have a ton of cash.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Triangle may not be your top choice.
