On CAPS, 94% of the 129 members who have rated NTELOS believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier today, one of those bulls, Steven261, succinctly summed up the NTELOS bull case for our community:

This stock has good prospects because of its profitability compared with its competitors (EPS, margin), its low price compared with its year-lows (probability that it will go up rather than down), and its appealing dividend (13.42% annual yield).

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