On CAPS, 82% of the 176 members who have rated Ryder believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A few months ago, one of those Fools, alexfsx, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Ryder is getting into natural gas powered trucks more and more. The logistics and transportation business is going to grow as the economy improves and I see the economy going up albeit more slowly than we would like. Also, when the economy starts moving Ryder's truck rental starts moving first when companies rent more to move more merchandise but are still reluctant to invest in new or replacement trucks. A win-win for Ryder.

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