On CAPS, 95% of the 1,052 members who have rated Stratasys believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, monkeykat, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Stratasys is at the forefront of the 3D printing world and the maker of the largest 3D printers available. It may take a few more years before home versions become affordable enough for people to buy from 3D and other companies, but [Stratasys] will continue to lead and expand into the commercial and industrial market well ahead of any newcomers.

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