On CAPS, 92% of the 39 members who have rated Oaktree believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, dprla, succinctly summed up the Oaktree bull case for our community:

Over 8% [dividend yield] now, excellent business, top notch management with Howard Marks. Hard not to outperform when you start with that high a yield that might vary a bit. Probably one of the best investors around.

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