On CAPS, 99% of the 496 members who have rated InvenSense believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, JoeArizona, succinctly summed up the InvenSense bull case for our community:

Motion-tracking is a big deal. InvenSense makes reliable, tiny gyroscopes, and there are lots of customers looking for smart phones out there. Tons of growth potential.

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

    Just like STP was a favorite of MF, here we go again.

    LAWSUITS from relentless pursuants are never discussed as serious issues.

    Insiders seems to want to stay away too! (-93.5%)

    But there migth be an interesting short squeeze (17.9%)

    As to the fact that the "Fool community" gives it a high rating, this doesn't impress me much.
