On CAPS, 93% of the 2,721 members who have rated Coach believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Andy Cross (TMFOpie), tapped Coach as a still-attractive long-term opportunity:

Strong global brand, international opportunities, great merchandizing leadership. Stock has been mediocre because of slip-ups in the US and worries on China growth. But over the next 3-5 years Coach is a winner.

If you want market-thumping 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, Coach may not be your top choice.
