On CAPS, 95% of the 204 members who have rated Miller Industries believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star ElCid16, succinctly summed up the Miller Industries bull case for our community:

I think $15 represents good value. The company is an industry leader with solid management. EPS estimates for FY 2013 are $0.84 and $1.40 -- I'm guessing that earnings end up on the lower end of that range. But the company has about $4 in cash per share, which easily supports the 3.5% yield. If the company has another year like 2011, this quickly becomes a $30 stock.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Miller Industries may not be your top choice.
