On CAPS, 88% of the 636 members who have rated Xerox believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star BKITU, succinctly summed up the Xerox bull case for our community:

They have become a surprisingly adaptable company in the light of rapidly changing technology. Their added-service model is a money-printing machine. Excellent margins, and the stock is almost absurdly underpriced.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Xerox may not be your top choice.
