On CAPS, 91% of the 1,274 members who have rated iRobot believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, Ikarruss, tapped iRobot as a particularly solid bargain opportunity: "No debt, I'll bet more people will pay to clean their house regardless of Obama's military policy. There are other markets for this technology, and with the amount of cash they have I'm sure they will grow faster than their average P/E suggests."

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