Just last week, one of those Fools, adilimani, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Stock is weak right now cause Apple has taken a little hit over the past 1-2 weeks. However, Skyworks which is a semi-conductor company remains strong and is in a growing sector. Very innovative company and continuously diversifies its offerings.

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 a strong four-star rating, Skyworks may not be your top choice.
