On CAPS, 85% of the 1,121 members who have rated The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, djohn1969, succinctly summed up the Blackstone bull case for our community:

I like The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) a lot as a real estate recovery play, although there are many other things I like about the company as well. According to Bloomberg, Blackstone Group is the largest U.S. private real estate owner. Especially now that all the home builders have already run up, it makes sense to me to invest in the top owner of homes, rather than just a builder.

I’ve been watching and wanting to buy The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) for a while, but was turned off by the involvement in a potential Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) deal. Now that Blackstone has pulled out of that mess, I believe now is the perfect time to get in on Blackstone. I also like how Blackstone handled the SeaWorld IPO and the fact that they will continue to make money on that deal going forward. And, that’s not to mention that Blackstone is likely to be a huge beneficiary as the overall M&A market continues to pick up momentum.

I consider The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) to be a very strong long-term holding with a great yield (~6%).

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) may not be your top choice.
