Just yesterday, Motley Fool advisor and CIO Andy Cross (TMFOpie) succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Building a platform to help bond investors buy and sell bond positions more effectively. Business has been on a tear recently pushing the earnings multiple a bit higher but I still believe in the next 3-5 years this company will be worth much more than $52 per share based on potential growth rates and adoption.

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

After all, many investors are terrified about investing in financial stocks after the crash, but the sector has one notable stand-out. In a sea of mismanaged and dangerous peers, it rises above as "The Only Big Bank Built to Last." You can uncover the top pick that Warren Buffett loves in The Motley Fool's new report.
