On CAPS, 96% of the 718 members who have rated Cirrus believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, vanliew, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive turnaround opportunity:

Cirrus has had a 35%+ pull-back over the last few months. This after beating last qtr's estimates and signaling high expectations for the coming qtr with their words and actions (ie share buy back). They are tied to the hip with Apple and I don't see that as a liability; think iphone5/ipad mini and Christmas/China. Cirrus should come roaring back.

If you want market-thumping 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 a strong four-star rating, Cirrus may not be your top choice.
