On CAPS, 87% of the 4,435 members who have rated Xerox believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier today, one of those Fools, All-Star dreamjob, tapped the stock as a particularly timely bargain opportunity:

Xerox looks very affordable right now at $8.80. Strong cash flows, respectable [cash return on invested capital] (would like a little higher), manageable debt, growing earnings and book value. Cash yield at almost 15% makes this cheap in my eyes.  

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