On CAPS, 96% of the 691 members who have rated Teradata believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Late last year, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Alex Scherer (TMFEnochRoot), touched on the tailwinds working in the stock's favor:

Teradata is the market leader in the data analytics industry, and this area is the #1 priority for new spending by corporate Chief Technology Officers these days, because it's a spot where they can get a really high return on their investment, improving how they serve customers and ultimately improving profits. Teradata is purely focused on this analytics market, and is probably the best positioned company out there in the corporate technology world to benefit from this multi-year industry trend.

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