On CAPS, 94% of the 569 members who have rated Mylan believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this year, one of those Fools, brenoboyle, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Mylan has seen and should continue to see rapidly expanding revenues due to the patent cliff and expanding prescription drug coverage. Add a robust share repurchase program and [less than] 11x forward earnings is a pittance to pay for a stock that has trounced the S&P over the past 5 years.

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