On CAPS, 97% of the 1,533 members who have rated Ebix believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, jwray01, listed several of Ebix's positives for our community:

* lots of insider buying ...
* very little insider selling
* low P/E and consistent earnings growth
* situated in an industry that is likely to grow rapidly unless the government intervenes.
* keeps costs down by hiring people in cheap areas. Risk of government protectionism or rising wages in those countries.

If you want market-topping returns, 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 five-star rating, Ebix may not be your top choice.
