On CAPS, 92% of the 50 members who have rated Taro believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star DrGoldin, succinctly summed up the Taro bull case for our community: "What's not to like? Margins and returns at the high end of the industry, with nothing but consistent growth for the future. All this at a modest p/e (however you wish to calculate it). And clean sheets!"

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