On CAPS, 96% of the 268 of the members who have rated FLY Leasing believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star DrGoldin, tapped FLY Leasing as a clearly attractive income opportunity:

Either there's something I'm not seeing or this is an obvious buy. That's what CAPS is for! Low valuation, nice dividend with reasonable payout ratio -- and basically I just like their business model. Leasing aircraft makes a lot of sense.

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 its five-star rating, FLY Leasing may not be your top choice.
