On CAPS, 98% of the 160 members who have rated Tile Shop believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, pmadiraju, explained why the stock still has plenty of room to run:

The real estate market is turning around. Assuming home prices increase over time, equity in the homes increases, and home owners will spend money upgrading homes. TTS has a veteran management team, and is poised to increase stores across the country. I should have been in TTS 4 or 5 months back. Better late than never! Strongly outperform for the next 5 years!

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