On CAPS, 95% of the 177 members who have rated Docomo believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, leomeister, offered some useful insight into the Docomo outperform case:

I lived in Japan for 3 yrs, and used Docomo the whole time. Cell coverage was much better than Softbank. Many Americans opted for Softbank due to having the iPhone, but always complained about the poor cell coverage. After the 2011 Earthquake/Tsunami, I was able to reach my Docomo friends via phone, but not my Softbank friends. Their stores are on par with Apple stores, and their customer service was tops. I was surprised to see Docomo in Guam as well.
