On CAPS, all 11 members who have rated CyrusOne believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star TMFDeej, explained why CyrusOne is certainly worth watching:

Yes, CyrusOne appears to be fairly expensive to me. However, it is both a spinoff and a REIT conversion, types of stocks that have significantly outperformed the S&P lately and historically. While the [Benjamin Graham] investor in me wants to value future growth at zero, there's no denying that the data center sector has some major tailwinds behind it right now and likely for some time to come. The special situations combined with a hot sector make this one a CAPS buy. As I mentioned, I think that it's a little rich for real money though. [T]ime will tell.

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, CyrusOne may not be your top choice.
