On CAPS, all 17 of the members who have rated Black Diamond believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

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

Quality gear in a segment without a ton of competition (i.e. climbing). More competition in skiing. I like their move and hires for an apparel line. That is a crowded field, but I think they can do it well. Fast growing, with much potential.

If you want market-topping returns, 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 five-star rating, Black Diamond may not be your top choice.
