On CAPS, 82% of the 275 members who have rated Men's Wearhouse believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, succinctly summed up the Men's Wearhouse bull case for our community:

-50th best place to work for according to Forbes, great to see in the retail space
-strong margins and a slow and steady growth strategy
-corporate apparel turned profitable over the last year
-trades at a cheaper valuation to Jos. A. Bank and Macy's but has proven to be the safest bet of the three historically

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