On CAPS, 95% of the 310 members who have rated Resource Capital believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, PuddinHead42, succinctly summed up the Resource Capital bull case for our community: "A bet to profit from the various side effects of [QE-ternity]. Will only fail if QE stops which I can't see except in a total US financial system collapse which probably is still some years away."
