Market-trouncing returns could be written in these five stars.

Based on the aggregated intelligence of 180,000-plus investors participating in Motley Fool CAPS, the Fool's free investing community, consumer banking services specialist BofI Holding (AX -1.41%) has earned a coveted five-star ranking.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at BofI and see what CAPS investors are saying about the stock right now.

BofI facts

On CAPS, 99% of the 222 members who have rated BofI believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, TMFTheRealDeal, succinctly summed up the BofI bull case for our community:

Just as Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) dominated retail by disrupting brick-and-mortar retail stores, BOFI is in the same position when it comes to banks. A structural cost advantage and trends pointing toward increased utilization of Internet-based solutions bode well for BOFI. And as it expands, margins should improve due to scalability of the business. Excellent long-term potential here.
