On CAPS, 89% of the 224 members who have rated Fusion-io believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those bulls, fellow Fool David Meier (TMFHumbleServant), tapped the stock as a particularly attractive growth opportunity:

Fusion-io uses solid-state memory to help servers run more efficiently and effectively. There are lots of servers out there that could use a boost, as well as new ones that will come online. Major customers include Facebook (Nasdaq: FB  ) and Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) for their internal networks.

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 a strong four-star rating, Fusion-io may not be your top choice.
