On CAPS, 87% of the 87 members who have rated Regis believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star kkconway, tapped Regis as a particularly sharp turnaround opportunity: "Divestiture of Hair Club for Men asset looks like a short term catalyst, but it could be a nice play for long term growth. [I]f the new management stops the bleeding at Supercuts salons, they are off to a promising start as of last quarter ."

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