On CAPS, 94% of the 651 members who have rated Power-One believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last week, one of those Fools, GirlsUnder30, helped bring the opportunity to our community's attention: "For those unfamiliar with this company, they sell power inverters for solar and wind generators. I believe solar will have a sunny future so they should make some money and grow but be prepared for some headwind because competition is coming."

If you want to retire rich, 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, Power-One may not be your top choice.
