Just yesterday, Motley Fool advisor and CIO Andy Cross (TMFOpie) succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Building a platform to help bond investors buy and sell bond positions more effectively. Business has been on a tear recently pushing the earnings multiple a bit higher but I still believe in the next 3-5 years this company will be worth much more than $52 per share based on potential growth rates and adoption.

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

After all, many investors are terrified about investing in financial stocks after the crash, but the sector has one notable stand-out.
