On CAPS, 82% of the 180 members who have rated Ryder believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, All-Star firenze1, brought Ryder's brand new growth opportunity to our community's attention:

This company is leasing and doing the maintenance on [natural gas] tractors. Brilliant ... why wouldn't a company lease these from Ryder? They would because they don't have to maintain them and they get an energy savings to boot. Now if Ryder can be cost effective and profitable at this ... well, that remains to be seen. Yes, for now.

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