On CAPS, 96% of the 543 members who have rated Chubb believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this summer, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, highlighted Chubb as a particularly solid opportunity: "Not an explosive growth story with 4% yearly revenue growth over the last decade, but a constantly growing dividend (10+ years of increases), quality valuation (12 P/E & 11 Price to Cash Flow), a 12% profit margin, and low debt, make Chubb worth a look."

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 a strong four-star rating, Chubb may not be your top choice.
