On CAPS, 96% of the 5,561 members who have rated NVIDIA believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, MrRoell, succinctly summed up the bull case of our community:

NVIDIA produces chips for smart phones and tablets and those are only going to become more and more popular and powerful. Great fundamentals with low P/E, [little debt], solid profit margin and a decent dividend, plenty of cash on hand ($5.50 per share) and a great quick ratio. Overall, this company sounds like a slam dunk for any portfolio.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, NVIDIA may not be your top choice.
