A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, TXinvestor82, succinctly summed up the Expeditors bull case for our community:

There's been a lot of negative vibe for this stock surrounding the expectation of an economic slowdown. But Expeditors has built expertise in their niche and is shareholder-friendly (they have been aggressively increasing their dividend). I think they're a long-term outperformer that is selling on the cheap.

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