On CAPS, 91% of the 356 members who have rated BMO believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Late last year, one of those Fools, DollarDaze100, highlighted several of BMO's positives:

Very solid company run by very smart, pragmatic, risk-appropriate executives. Excellent product line-up. Bold but thoughtful foray into US through subsidiary Harris Bank in Chicago via [Marshall & Ilsley] merger will eventually yield growth, earnings and ... stock price appreciation. Has strong capital, market street smarts, can compete on Wall Street and Main Street.  

Of course, despite its four-star rating, BMO may not be your top choice. If that's the case, we've compiled a special free report for investors called "Secure Your Future With 11 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks," which uncovers several other juicy income opportunities. The report is 100% free, but it won't be around forever, so click here to access it now.
