On CAPS, 96% of the 285 members who have rated 8x8 believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
I'm bullish on all four of the VoIP gurus, for somewhat different reasons. 8x8 is solidly profitable, and its business-class services are gaining traction beyond the itty-bitty biz segment. Cbeyond has the corporate focus down and is just waiting to turn the corner into profitability, making for an attractively priced stock. magicJack and Vonage cater to the consumer at different balances between price and convenience, and it's only a matter of time before a smartphone-infused America catches on to their advantages.
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. Of course, despite its four-star rating, 8x8 may not be your top choice.
