On CAPS, 90% of the 83 members who have rated MTS believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

This company goes under the radar of investment firms due to its small size. However, I think this company is set to grow quite well. It also pays steady dividends, and its share price has steadily grown.

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