On CAPS, 95% of the 550 members who have rated Expeditors believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier today, one of those Fools, TMFTailwind, succinctly summed up the Expeditors bull case for our community:

Similar to CH Robinson, EXPD is another [third-party logistics] carrier that is poised to outperform.

- Asset-light business with no debt and plenty of cash
-Long-term network effect that is valuable to customers
-ROIC consistently greater than 20%
-Dividend that is up 75% in four years

EXPD has lagged the market for the past two years, which (to me, at least) means that now is the time to buy. Its current valuation is a great entry point -- EXPD's P/E and P/B ratios are the lowest that they've been in ten years.

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