On CAPS, 91% of the 106 members who have rated Microsemi believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those Fools, ScalaAnalyst, brought Microsemi's solid fundamentals to our community's attention:

Good company, good numbers. P/E low, growth rate seems to be on target. [G]ood price to book and sales to book. Nice small company which can easily continue to grow for the next 2 or 3 years.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, Microsemi may not be your top choice.
