On CAPS, 74% of the 87 members who have rated Credit Acceptance believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last week, one of those bulls, morowulf, tapped Credit Acceptance as a timely trade:

I think this stock may make a big move in the next few weeks. It has been forming a classic cup and handle pattern over the past 6 months. In the past couple of weeks it has been forming the handle to shake-off weary investors before the next big move. It has consistent EPS growth, high ROE, and the number of outstanding shares have been decreasing. If it doesn't blow up first because of their risky loans or because of their high leverage, I think this one could trade as high as $200 based upon EPS growth.

What do you think about Credit Acceptance, or any other stock for that matter? If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future, and on Motley Fool CAPS, thousands of investors are working every day to find them. CAPS is 100% free, so get started!
