On CAPS, 94% of the 1,273 members who have rated Universal Display believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

A few months ago, one of those Fools, mwlove, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

OLED is the technology of the future, with benefits in power efficiency, flexibility, and better contrast. Universal display is the leader in this technology, and will continue to expand its business as manufacturers abandon the LCDs. Samsung is going big on OLED, with agreements with [Universal Display]. ... Look for this business to really grow over the coming two years. Extreme volatility seems to be name of the game here, and there will be many opportunities to add this name to the portfolio.   

If you want market-thumping 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 four-star rating, Universal Display may not be your top choice.
