On CAPS, 96% of the 1,297 members who have rated InterDigital believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, jackycheng, highlighted the slumping stock price as a possible bargain opportunity: "Though the business is slowing down and the company is lacking of management skill to monitor the recurring incomes, it would not be a bad choice to buy it now after the great drop as the [patent portfolio is likely] worth more than the current market value."

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, InterDigital may not be your top choice.
