On CAPS, 96% of the 2,004 members who have rated Hasbro believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, hend6, succinctly summed up the Hasbro bull case for our community:

Heck, even stores like Gamestop are starting to carry board games. A growing population and more families will be buying toys and games, or electronic versions for tablets and computers. Great dividend yield, share buybacks, and relatively strong earnings.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Hasbro may not be your top choice.
