On CAPS, 94% of the 175 members who have rated Scripps believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Sara Hov (TMFTycoon), succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community: "Scripps rules its niche, and it's a niche that advertisers love and will pay up for. Also, the company is innovative with its content and new channels, and it owns its digital archives of content."

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