On CAPS, 93% of the 166 members who have rated Wolverine believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Earlier this week, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Sara Hov (TMFTycoon), succinctly summed up the Wolverine outperform case for our community: "Sperry is on fire, and Wolverine is capitalizing on that and other brands' success through direct-to-consumer sales. But the real growth story is international sales, which should fill Wolverine's sails for several years."
