On CAPS, 95% of the 515 members who have rated TIBCO believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Tradersinfo, succinctly summed up the TIBCO bull case for our community:

An attractively valued IT services company that's growing at a decent and sustainable, 11% rate. Not a whole lot of growth, but it's faster than IBM. ... Analysts believe that TIBCO will hit $35 in the next 52 weeks. I believe so too.

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

If that's the case, we've compiled a special free report for investors called "Secure Your Future With 9 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks," which uncovers several other juicy income opportunities. The report is 100% free, but it won't be around forever, so click here to access it now.

    When I read POP I usually get the impression the stock will climb. It must have another meaning to the author for the above article. Stock price is down more than 10% one day later.
