On CAPS, 96% of the 1,769 members who have rated CVS Caremark believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Not my traditional investment as I'm relying on more growth than anything, but still pays a decent dividend and valuation is OK. They have impressed me with [year-over-year] revenue growth and with the baby boomers continuing to age, I see huge growth. It may take a few years, but I have time.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, CVS Caremark may not be your top choice.
