On CAPS, 98% of the 246 members who have rated InvenSense believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star boxxer55, tapped InvenSense as a sensible growth opportunity:

Made this pick a little early, but very excited for the long-term prospects of this company. Revenue and earnings growth projections are tremendous even before the recent new product announcements. Selling at just more than 1/2 its 52 week high, this is a great time to pick up shares with real $$0. Don't fret about [Wednesday's] run up -- think long-term.

If you want market-thumping returns, 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 its five-star rating, InvenSense may not be your top choice.

We've found another tech play we are incredibly excited about -- excited enough to dub it "The Only Stock You Need to Profit from the NEW Technology Revolution."
