On CAPS, 94% of the 3,000 members who have rated Coach believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star RockyMountainMan, tapped Coach as a particularly solid income opportunity:

Strong [free cash flow] that supports dividend increases. Currently around [30%] payout ratio so [Coach] can continue to increase the dividend which will put a floor under the stock. [Coach] will pay you while you (to the tune of 3% -- bonds anyone?) wait for the growth in China to kick in. Having a stellar balance sheet with virtually zero debt is what I like to see in companies I own. [Coach] is near the bottom range of its past P/E.
