Does Placing Outbound Links Help Ranking?

I have recently read that you should place an outbound link to a relevant high page rank site in your posts. Does this somehow add to the credibility to your page? I wasn't sure to dismiss what they said or not...

I wouldn't dismiss it at all. Having links going out to authority sites are good. I think it does give your site a bit of added credit if you link to a quality, authority site.

Nine times out of ten if these authority sites sees that you are linking to them, they may give you a link back from their site as well...

I have had great success linking out to reliable and authoritative sites from my articles. This is how I basically built my incoming links and PR before all the social networking/bookmarking stuff came into play.

Providing valuable information has a snowball effect. Good valuable content and information = getting talked about on and off line = incoming links from all kinds of people
