On CAPS, 98% of the 454 members who have rated Spectrum believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

The company has a strong pipeline of drugs, keeps getting approvals from the FDA, and has been building strong networks with physicians (prevents generics from taking back that much market share). Also, it has been said that Spectrum has only tapped roughly 50% of the possible physicians to date.

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