On CAPS, 94% of the 2,767 members who have rated Coach believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Seattleldg, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Coach has a big presence in China and is also growing domestically through their expanded men's line. Domestic growth has undoubtedly slowed in the last few years but the company has only had one down year in the last 7 (2009). The company has great margins, ROE and ROIC. When the US economy picks up, the company's growth and stock price should accelerate. In the meantime, you get a 2.2% [dividend yield].

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