On CAPS, 91% of the 4,259 members who have rated Boeing believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last week, one of those Fools, zoombag, succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community: "Boeing continues to build backlog in the commercial aircraft business, and will likely begin to acquire strategic defense firms as the defense industry continues to consolidate, opening new opportunities for efficiencies and growth."

If you want market-beating 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 its four-star rating, Boeing may not be your top choice.
