On CAPS, 95% of the 321 members who have rated World Fuel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, 2good2betrue, tapped World Fuel as a particularly timely opportunity:

[A]s I read about this company and what they do, I like where they are going and their acquisitions seem to jive with their core competency. I put my low end target as [$50 per share] with an opportunistic target of [$55] which should come about when their latest acquisition starts to show up in their financials.

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