On CAPS, 96% of the 529 members who have rated Dr. Reddy's believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, NHWeston102, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Hidden under the shadow of India's current money woes, Dr. Reddy is now a global generic company with superlative service creds. The domestic market alone insures they'll profit [1.2 billion consumers]. They have lots of little partnerships with companies large and small -- and, if they like what a small company is doing well [enough], they have the cash flow to buy it.

If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its four-star rating, Dr. Reddy's may not be your top choice.
