On CAPS, 95% of the 374 members who have rated Gramercy believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, All-Star TMFDeej, succinctly summed up the Gramercy bull case for our community: "The conversion from a wierd CDO machine into a normal REIT with real property assets continues. Once [Gramercy] pays off its preferred shareholders (of which I am one as well) and initiates a dividend on the common at some point this year or next its stock should take off." 

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