Why CME Group Is Poised to Outperform

Based on the aggregated intelligence of 180,000-plus investors participating in Motley Fool CAPS, the Fool's free investing community, derivatives exchange giant CME Group (NASDAQ: CME  ) has earned a respected four-star ranking.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at CME and see what CAPS investors are saying about the stock right now.

On CAPS, 94% of the 823 members who have rated CME believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star prstout, highlighted CME as a particularly timely bargain opportunity:

Sell-off looks over-done. Well managed firm that returns capital to owners (dividends) rather than providing monies to departing owners (share repurchase). With the change in Federal Reserve policy, trading in interest rate futures might see more activity.

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

If that's the case, we've compiled a special free report for investors called "The 3 Dow Stocks Dividend Investors Need," 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.
