On CAPS, 94% of the 2,762 members who have rated Coach believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, trl77, touched on the tailwinds working in Coach's favor: "Asian demand for luxury products will continue despite the possible downturn in large ticket items. Combine with the fact that the growth of all male stores has continued throughout and you will see it sneak ahead the S&P in the next couple of years."

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, Coach may not be your top choice.
