On CAPS, 96% of the 489 members who have rated Smucker believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Jason Moser (TMFJMo), tapped Smucker as a particularly tasty income opportunity:

Virtually every pantry in the US has something made by these guys. This by no means lights the world on fire, but it's a well-managed company with a good record of outperforming the market over long periods of time and that's partly thanks to the 2.1% and rising dividend yield. Looking for a holding for 5+ years? This is one to consider and I said so today on Investor Beat.

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