Sharing ideas, information, and strategies is what Motley Fool CAPS is all about. The collective thoughts of the 170,000-plus members of the CAPS community often accurately reflect the future performance of stocks in general. CAPS stock ratings, which range from one to five stars, give the community an idea of where sentiment lies when weighing the future performance of a stock versus the S&P 500.
Nobody is perfect, however, and neither is the community. After perusing through the CAPS one-star list of projected underperformers, I came across three companies that could just as easily be five-star stocks. Here are three stocks the community may need to reconsider:
This isn't your mama's Polaroid
Investors may want to take another snapshot of Shutterfly
How did its competitors fare? Eastman Kodak
The community may not be jazzed about the prospects at Jazz Pharmaceuticals
The company may also be attracting the attention of larger rivals. Forest Labs
Casino stocks in general are rarely in the limelight, but none deserves a second chance more than Wynn Resorts
The company gets no respect despite turning a full-year profit five consecutive years. This includes 2009, a year when most casino operators, like MGM Resorts
