On CAPS, 97% of the 1,143 members who have rated Infosys believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, Robertgene, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Infosys has no long term debt, almost 8x assets to liabilities, and a nice stockpile of cash. They have a corporate structure that puts integrity at the forefront, which is very hard to find nowadays. They have recently reorganized their business structure in order to implement more revenue streams. They already had room to grow in front of them, now it's even more amplified. Very low attrition, global presence, and great products and talent. In my opinion one of [the] most solid companies I've researched top-to-bottom.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Infosys may not be your top choice.

If that's the case, we might have a better idea for you. Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner has achieved gains of more than 120% in our Stock Advisor service since it launched in March 2002. Compare that to the S&P 500's return of 29% over that same time frame. David has managed to trounce the market by always being on the lookout for revolutionary stocks and recommending them before Wall Street catches on to their disruptive potential.
