On CAPS, 97% of the 1,508 members who have rated Ebix believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, dsurdyka, succinctly summed up the Ebix bull case for our community:

Well managed, earnings and revenue growth, low debt, investing in future, small cap with potential for outsized returns. [PEG ratio of 0.7] and other stats look good. Quality product line.

If you want market-thumping 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, Ebix may not be your top choice.
