On CAPS, 97% of the 887 members who have rated PetMed believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, hend6, succinctly summed up the PetMed bull case for our community: "A very solid balance sheet, despite a lower year-over-year net income, mixed with a great dividend offering. As more people shift to online ordering, and as the younger generation continues to move out and get pets, services like these are posed to thrive."

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