On CAPS, 97%of the 878 members who have rated Cirrus believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those Fools, whoodatstockhot, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

Sometimes the market is completely irrational which presents buying opportunities. [Cirrus] integrated circuits for audio and energy markets are leading the industry, and demand continues to grow with mobile. Only because one of its customers happens to be the 2nd largest company in the world (and best in breed itself) [Cirrus] shares have been crushed. This short-term fad to sell Apple related stocks is coming to an end, and [Cirrus] on a valuation basis looks like an extremely good value. Expect some major upside for [Cirrus] in coming months.

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