On CAPS, 95% of the 717 members who have rated Skyworks believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Gowithit, tapped Skyworks as a particularly attractive turnaround selection:

This stock has been severely dinged based on the news of Qualcomm entering its marketplace, after a 12% rise after earnings that were stellar and decent guidance. The Qualcomm product will not be good to go for a while and it seems like it will be lower end based on initial accounts I have read. This is a strong buy at more than a dollar less than [pre-great-earnings] a few weeks back.

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