On CAPS, 88% of the 156 members who have rated Alexander & Baldwin believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star TMFDeej, took the lead of another value investing guru made an outperform call on the stock:

Mick McGuire of Marcato Capital Management brought this oldie but goodie to my attention again. After the recent spin-off [Alexander & Baldwin] is basically a land owner in Hawaii. Heck they own nearly a quarter of the island of Maui with values on the books that are substantially below market value. He believes the stock has 50% upside.

If you want market-thumping 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 a strong four-star rating, Alexander & Baldwin may not be your top choice.
