On CAPS, 94% of the 104 members who have rated DigitalGlobe believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, Menidia, brought DigitalGlobe's recent purchase to our community's attention:

Acquisition of GeoEye creates a US monopoly in an area of satellite imagery with little international competition. Merging the companies may be costly initially, but will lead to stronger pricing and efficiencies in the long term. Threats to revenue by loss of government funding are real, but commercial opportunities for satellite imagery grow daily.

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

We've found another growth play we are incredibly excited about -- excited enough to dub it "The Only Stock You Need to Profit from the NEW Technology Revolution."
