On CAPS, 95% of the 539 members who have rated TIBCO believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, PuddinHead42, tapped TIBCO as a potentially attractive bargain opportunity: "Predictive software and big data are real, but 3 quarters of disappointment have [TIBCO] owners crying. Maybe expectations are low enough and the economy is growing well enough to reverse the trend."

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