On CAPS, 97% of the 7,209 members who have rated Activision believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, All-Star callumturcan, tapped Activision as a particularly timely opportunity:

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is selling very well and will draw in those who were put off by [Modern Warfare 3]. [World of Warcraft] is also picking up steam and getting those subscription numbers back up over 10 million. Plus a new addition of Starcraft 2 is coming out this spring. Many things to be bullish on. They will beat expectations this holiday season.

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, Activision may not be your top choice.
