On CAPS, 98% of the 308 members who have rated Textainer believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, All-Star MJKpayday, succinctly summed up the Textainer bull case for our community:

Basically they buy/sell/trade/lease containers. Nothing special business-wise, reasonably well run, trustworthy management, but very good price to value ratios and a good dividend. One last thing -- if the Euro/No. American free trade agreement helps, companies like this would stand to improve their true value and may get a boost in recognition.

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