On CAPS, 92% of the 3,031 members who have rated Under Armour believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, All-Star gweech, succinctly summed up the Under Armour bull case for our community:

UA is pricey, but it will always be pricey like [Amazon.com]. They have a pile of cash, small debt, and great return on equity ratios. From a fundamentals standpoint, they are solid. When I add in my 7 year old's pulse on style, this is now a huge buying opportunity. Why? Because they are the first sports apparel manufacturer to upset Nike as the king of brands.

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