On CAPS, 97% of the 1,153 members who have rated NetEase believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, ValueMan1988, tapped the stock as a particularly solid bargain opportunity:

[NetEase] showed support at $37 and change, with a company buy back in place. Also half of its market cap is in cash with no debt! On top of this the fundamentals are shining for [NetEase] as compared to its peers. It has a major competitive advantage with rights to World of Warcraft. Overall [NetEase] is a great company at an attractive valuation.

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