On CAPS, 94% of the 175 members who have rated DoCoMo believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, larvalbug, brought DoCoMo's attractive fundamentals to our community's attention:

Low P/E, debt to equity, dividend payout ratio, and EV/EBITDA. Reasonably low price to book value. Decent return on equity, net income, current ratio, and cash flow. Shareholder equity over half the total assets. Nice dividend.

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