Just last week, one of those Fools, mjwclarke, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Tim Hortons has an unbeatable brand in Canada, and is expanding at a healthy clip in the United States. They are introducing ever-higher margin products into their stores and expanding well in the lunch and dinner segments. P/E is at the higher end, but business risk is low and competition in their home market is relatively low. This company has a wide moat.

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