On CAPS, 96% of the 1,746 members who have rated CVS Caremark believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

CVS possesses enormous purchasing power relative to its peers. CVS filled 990 million prescriptions versus 785 million for Walgreen in 2012. CVS will benefit from the soured relationship between Walgreen and Express Scripts. Obamacare will decrease the number of uninsured expanding CVS's market. All of this adds up to market beating returns.
