On CAPS, 98% of the 4,055 members who have rated Dolby believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, wassaw18, tapped Dolby as a rather sweet-sounding bargain opportunity:

The movie exhibition industry is fiercely competitive, and any small advantage will be taken. This will provide strong demand for Dolby Atmos when it is ready for sale. Additionally, this company has stockpiled serious cash for share buybacks, acquisitions, and massive spending in the R&D department. It is ready to unlock that hidden value in spite of its recent depressed price.

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.

We've found another growth play we are incredibly excited about -- excited enough to dub it "The Only Stock You Need to Profit from the NEW Technology Revolution."
