On CAPS, 98% of the 4,064 members who have rated Dolby believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, kram789, tapped Dolby as a particularly sound bargain opportunity:

Dolby is under valued. With their margins a P/E of 18 would not be out of line. The company has experienced some retraction in earnings and revenue, but has a history of excellent management and innovation. What we are really betting on is that they will innovate and be part of the next generation in computing.

If you want to retire rich, 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, Dolby may not be your top choice.
