On CAPS, 85% of the 330 members who have rated LeapFrog believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, ryanfour1637, succinctly summed up the LeapFrog bull case for our community:

Parents will always continue to spend on their [children's] education. People have been concerned about LeapFrog spending money advertising -- for the first time in several years LeapFrog is returning to television advertising -- however, their products are so well demanded that this increase in spending will be offset or exceeded by the increase in sales. LeapFrog has been grossly undervalued as of late and are at a great price to buy. Don't miss out of this opportunity.

If you want market-beating 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, LeapFrog may not be your top choice.
