On CAPS, 97% of the 294 members who have rated Female Health believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star aufergy, succinctly summed up the Female Health bull case for our community:

- Debt free balance sheet
-Company has strong margins and produces healthy free cash flow. ...
-Very little (if any) competition. They have the only FDA approved [female condom product].

A company that has a nice moat in a niche that should continue to grow, a strong balance sheet, and only one analyst following it. All that for 16x trailing earnings? I'm in. Peter Lynch would be proud.

If you want market-topping 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, Female Health may not be your top choice.
