On CAPS, all 25 of the CAPS members who have rated AG Mortgage believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star Staka, offered our community a balanced take on the opportunity:

Positive:-Another play to profit from the idiotic FED asset price manipulation schema-3Q12 earnings were better than expected as net income came in above estimates and book value per share increased more than anticipated Negative:-Risk of early termination of FED MBS buying (is close to nil, rather the FED will up buying levels)

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