On CAPS, 95% of the 1,282 members who have rated Universal Display believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those bulls, mmFuul, succinctly summed up the Universal Display bull case for our community:

OLED will take time to grow. Short term smart phones and tablets will help keep the stock price steady. In 3 plus years, OLED TVs should make the stock fly. Should easily beat S&P over this time frame.

If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Universal Display may not be your top choice.
