On CAPS, 96% of the 866 members who have rated Seaspan believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just this past week, one of those Fools, TheArchivist, succinctly summed up the Seaspan bull case for our community:

Fleet expansion will increase revenues. Still have to wait for charter rates to rise. Long-term contracts might preclude benefiting from this, though. For now, Seaspan looks to be in solid shape even if growth lags a little.

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