On CAPS, 90% of the 640 members who have rated TJX believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, EVplusEV, kindly updated our community to the TJX opportunity:

TJX stock has underperformed the retail sector by 14% so far this year, yet they beat January [comparable store sales] by a full 1% and they raised guidance for the year. Off-Price retail is still king in this economy and I think TJX is ripe at this price. Looking for [$52 per share] out of TJX.

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