Just yesterday, one of those Fools, hend6, helped bring the Silicon Motion opportunity to our community's attention:

A strong balance sheet in an ever-demanding tech industry leaves them more free than the giants to jump to new waves. Certainly a volatile market, so I'll reevaluate after a year. A recent offering of a small dividend helps a little as well.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Silicon Motion may not be your top choice.
