Every week, I take a look at a few companies that lapped their profit targets. Leaving Wall Street's pros with quizzical looks on their faces can be a good thing. It usually means that the companies have more in the tank than analysts figured, and capital appreciation often follows.
Let's take a look at a few companies that humbled the prognosticators this past week.
We'll start with Chipotle
You've got to hand it to Chipotle. Since going public 15 months ago, the company has hit it out of the park in each and every single quarter. The chain has beaten consensus bottom-line projections by at least $0.05 per share every time.

Then we have Bankrate
So, keep watching the companies that lap expectations. Over time, it will be a rewarding experience for investors as the market rewards the overachievers. That's the kind of surprise we look for in the Rule Breakers newsletter service. Want in? Check out a 30-day trial subscription.
