On CAPS, 94% of the 200 members who have rated Syntel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last week, one of those bulls, JohnStuartMill, touched on the trends working in Syntel's favor:

Outsourcing continues to be the norm in business today. [Syntel's] businesses of Application, Knowledge Process, e-Business, and Team Sourcing all play into this. [Syntel] will benefit from this operation mode. With high-tech down a bit right now, this may be a good value play.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, Syntel may not be your top choice.
