On CAPS, 97% of the 187 members who have rated ARMOUR Residential believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, badducky, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Interest rates remain low until 2014+? Well, REITs will continue to generate revenue. Even after the rise of interest, it will be a good time to cherry pick the top value REITs for long-term dividend plays (10+ years). I like a monthly dividend player, and this is one of the top players in the field, currently. Once the interest rate rises, though, it's anyone's guess what will happen to the field.

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