On CAPS, 93% of the 285 members who have rated Fiserv believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include tekennedy and dcrednek.

Late last week , tekennedy tapped Fiserv as a solid selection:

I picked this company based off of valuation backed up by stable cash flows from recurring revenue sources. The company should enjoy profitable growth as more banks outsource more business functions and as the company adds more cross-selling opportunities by offering a greater range of services.

If my fellow Fool Joe Magyer couldn't convince you last month to take a closer look at Fiserv, Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-A)(NYSE: BRK-B) recent stake in the company surely has to pique your interest now! It's no secret that Warren Buffett loves capital-light, cash-generating, wide-moat businesses, and that's exactly what he's getting in his purchase of the longtime four-star stock. Additionally, with Fiserv currently sporting a price-to-earnings ratio lower than close foes Fidelity National and Jack Henry, Fools can take advantage of another key quality Buffett looks for: a reasonable price.

CAPS member dcrednek sums it up:

Wide moat business model is strong and once a customer has installed Fiserv's system, it is both difficult and expensive to remove and replace, making it tough for competition to take away market share. Fiserv is a dominant banking & payments industry service provider. I like this business model, the balance sheet is strong, and the cash flow looks reliable. I think that the market will show little gain over the next few years and this stock will be one of the winners amid an ocean of mediocrity.
