On CAPS, 91% of the 2,339 members who have rated FedEx believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, TMFGemHunter, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

FedEx is aggressively restructuring its trademark Express business in order to better match capacity to demand for priority shipments. At the same time, it is growing its FedEx Ground business rapidly, gaining share vis-a-vis competitors. The company is driving its cost structure down and will reap a big payoff when global GDP growth starts to increase. EPS could approximately double in the next 4 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, FedEx may not be your top choice.

With the U.S. relying on the rest of the world for such a large percentage of our goods, many investors are ready for the end of the "made in China" era. Well, it may be here.
