On CAPS, 98% of the 372 members who have rated InvenSense believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this summer, one of those bulls, FoolSolo, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive growth pick:

[InvenSense] integrated gyroscope and 6-axis motion sensors are in Android phones, tablets and lots of other devices. They have been advancing the technology, making their chips more power efficient, more capable. They got whacked when [STMicro] filed a law suit for patent infringement, but I think it's bogus, and [InvenSense] has counter-sued. I think [STMicro] is afraid of [InvenSense], and suing them is a way to try and slow them down. It will pass.

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 its five-star rating, InvenSense may not be your top choice.
