On CAPS, 98% of the 1,220 members who have rated Darling believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, tprooney3, succinctly summed up the Darling bull case for our community: "Valuation is attractive (trailing P/E of 14, P/S 1.1), margins are healthy, and their core business is stable. I think the biodiesel venture [with Valero Energy (NYSE: VLO  ) ] could lead to significant outperformance over the next 5+ years."

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Darling may not be your top choice.
