On CAPS, 94% of the 840 members who have rated Express Scripts believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, adamlevy, succinctly summed up Express Scripts bull case for our community:

With an aging population that's becoming more reliant on prescription drugs the entire health care sector is poised to gain.

Additionally, Express Scripts stands to gain from the impending patent-cliffs of several blockbuster drugs in 2013 and 2014.

The company also has its foot in the booming specialty drug treatment market, and the purchase of Medco last year increases its position in cancer treatment, which is one of the fastest growing segments.

Finally, Obamacare will increase the number of insured citizens. While most will be through medicare, one of Express Scripts largest clients, WellPoint, is the biggest medicare-based insurer. This means a flood of new customers for Express Scripts.
