On CAPS, all 12 of the members who have rated Silver Bay believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star tad40, helped bring the opportunity to our community's attention:

[Silver Bay] is a cash-rich, debt-free company backed by [Two Harbors Investment (NYSE: TWO  ) ] with an enlarging portfolio of single-family houses in some of the hardest hit markets, including Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina and Texas. They specialize in the "acquisition, renovation, leasing and management of single-family residential properties for rental income and long-term appreciation." If you've missed out on purchasing a new home during the recent housing crash, you may want to consider [Silver Bay] as an alternative way to "own" these homes as the market continues to recover.

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