On CAPS, 92% of the 946 members who have rated Zipcar believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner (TMFSpiffyPop), tapped Zipcar as a particularly timely bargain opportunity:

Playing an expected earnings bounce. This is an active recommendation of mine and a holding. It is a stock the market has seemingly left for dead at this point. So in advance of earnings this week, I'm largely guessing (that's what "earnings bounce plays" are) that [Zipcar] will actually finally rise for once post-earnings. We shall see.

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.
