On CAPS, 92% of the 3,005 members who have rated Under Armour believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those bulls, fellow Fool David Meier (TMFHumbleServant), succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community:

The company just keeps making improvements to its business as it designs new (and better) products for its customers. And Kevin Plank is the CEO who can sustain that business momentum.

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