On CAPS, 94% of the 5,904 members who have rated Disney believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, AaronSmothers, succinctly summed up the Disney bull case for our community:

With the addition of Lucasfilm and the hopeful repeat of entertainment quality, Disney stands to reap serious rewards from box office, merchandise etc. These additions to the already world class portfolio of Disney will provide the offset needed from ESPN competition from News Corp. Add to that the continuing success of Disney Parks and you've got a great company for the foreseeable future.

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