Just last week, one of those Fools, acknotts01, succinctly summed up the OpenText bull case for our community:

Diversified revenue streams, check. Complementing service with major competitors, check. Strong management, check. Growth Industry, check. New dividend, check. Organic growth & high renewal rates, check. New products, check.

CEO Mark Barrenechea: "A few select highlights from the quarter. Record cash flows and dividend program; expected annual adjusted margins at the upper end of our fiscal '13 target model range; 13% year-over-year organic license growth and expected second half-over-second half license growth; and EIM strategy and financial model are working."

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