On CAPS, 98% of the 1,769 members who have rated Teva believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

Teva is a huge generic drug maker, with some outreach into the primary drug market. The company's balance sheet is strong, and the stock pays a reasonable dividend. With governments emphasizing cost controls for medical expense, Teva has a guaranteed market.

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