On CAPS, 91% of the 2,573 members who have rated Annaly believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Truslunch, tapped Annaly as a particularly solid income opportunity:

Everyone is worried about an increase in rates and how it will reduce [Annaly's] margin, bring down the dividend, and the share price has reflected this. Nevermind doing the homework on the history of the company shows that a few years ago when rates were higher, margin was smaller ... and dividend yield was still in double digits. I'll take the reinvested dividends, which will offset the losses to share price and turn one dollar in to two dollars every 7 years or so.

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