On CAPS, 97% of the 4,028 members who have rated Dolby believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, hend6, succinctly summed up the Dolby bull case for our community:

A very strong balance sheet with a pretty good income statement. Their technologies are everywhere, and presumably they will keep trying to innovate and keep a presence in as many places as possible. May not be terrific for growth, but should stay strong and have no problems maintaining.

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