On CAPS, 95% of the 829 members who have rated Kodiak believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, ABeaty86, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Based on research and market forecast, I believe that [Kodiak] is looking at [an uptrend] in the coming years. 2013 is poised to be a very good year for [Kodiak] as they look to cut cost and expand accounts east and west, not just north and south as has been the recent trend. I'm sticking with the forecast and my gut and rolling the dice on the stock. I'm holding on the shares I have and I will more than likely buy more, as I have been in recent days with the most recent down slope, and making this stock a prominent player in my portfolio.

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