On CAPS, 83% of the 315 members who have rated LeapFrog believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Rich Smith (TMFDitty) tapped LeapFrog as a particularly potent bargain opportunity: "Unbelievably cheap at less than six times [free cash flow] (net of cash), and a 20% projected growth rate. In fact, even if LeapFrog grows only half as fast as it's projected to, the stock is still a bargain."

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, LeapFrog may not be your top choice.

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