On CAPS, 96% of the 643 members who have rated Interactive Brokers believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, yieldideas, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Interactive Brokers is an excellent run company, with high profit margins, operating in a sector that has had some challenges in the last couple of years. IB is known for its highly automated systems which helps keep pre-tax profit margins consistently higher than its competitors. As the Baby Boomer Generation which tends to be more "do-it-yourself" is retiring, some assets will shift out of 401Ks and into independent brokers such as TD Ameritrade, Schwab, Fidelity, and to some extent to Interactive Brokers.
