On CAPS, 93% of the 1,198 members who have rated Take-Two believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star TMFBreakerTAllan, who is ranked in the top 2% of our community, and AlphaCenturion.

A few short months ago , TMFBreakerTAllan reminded Fools that Take-Two "has created successful game franchises year after year." Our CAPS All-Star continues: "The value of the existing games likely exceeds current pricing. And with that, more acquisition rumours and/or offers will be made."

Take-Two's consistently negative returns on equity and top-line declines don't exactly make it a typical Foolish pick. However, with valuable franchises and some of the brightest developers in the business, Fools are drawn to Take-Two for its untapped potential. Take-Two's Grand Theft Auto is among the most successful video game franchises of all time (outselling even Microsoft's Halo and Activision's Call of Duty), while its 2K label has given EA serious headaches in the sports segment.

Of course, with the company continuing to lose money, CAPS members like AlphaCenturion believe Take-Two is a prime target for someone else to turn around:

They have the best developers in the videogame industry. Period. There is no reason it shouldn't be a hugely profitable label given the right resources and proper management. I would buy [Take-Two] as a potential takeover target, not as a business. How long you would have to wait for that is a question due to the current state of the industry, but [Take-Two] has been targeted before and chances are it will happen again especially with Icahn being among the top holders.

What do you think about Take-Two, or any other stock for that matter? If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can.
