On CAPS, 96% of the 981 members who have rated Arris believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, sharpea4, brought a couple of possible catalysts to our community's attention:

[Arris] is a company that I think has very good management and ample opportunities to increase business over the next few years. The two opportunities I like most for [Arris] is the [Apple ] TV product being released as [Arris] could be a partner in bringing this to the market. I also think [Arris] has its eye on purchasing [Google's ] recently acquired Motorola Home business. ... These opportunities and [Arris'] track record of good management decisions makes [Arris] one of my favorite tech picks for 2013.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Arris may not be your top choice.
