Over on CAPS, 3,079 of the 3,155 members who have rated Dolby -- some 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include SmoothHughes and All-Star ifool100, who is ranked in the top 15% of our community.

In late April, SmoothHughes summed up the stock's sweet-sounding bull case:

Buying the brand, the moat, and the leadership here. Dolby will be a part of the majority of electronic sound delivery in the future and both the number of people and the ways they are listening will continue to see healthy growth. Plus, the company has plenty of cash and [little] debt.

In an earlier pitch, ifool100 helped that sentiment resonate with our community:

Original owner in control. Beautiful cash flow, [little] debt. Check any DVD/BlueRay/CD -- and you'll probably see the Dolby logo. Sound is huge, and 3D is coming on fast. I can't see how any other company can have the position that Dolby has. And during recessions/depressions people love to escape. Movies, music -- all of which Dolby is a part of. Great long-term play.
