On CAPS, 95% of the 64 members who have rated Tile Shop believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those bulls, Yacabe, tapped the stock as a particularly likable opportunity:

It's got a niche, that's for sure. I like that. I like that the niche is leaving room to grow. I like that the Tile Shop has quality products and good inventory. I like that it has been able to increase earnings. I like that it can provide for its growth internally and still post rising earnings. To sum it up: I like the Tile Shop, and I like it a lot.

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