On CAPS, 98% of the 498 members who have rated ROIC believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, mocha283, succinctly summed up the ROIC opportunity for our community:

In a world where retail is on one hand everywhere, we've also seen countless stand-alone stores go under. ROIC helps build these strip-mall type shopping centers in more upper-middle class areas to help these small groceries or pharmacies stay alive. Kudos (and thanks for the great dividend to boot!).

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