On CAPS, 92% of the 1,234 members who have rated Take-Two believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier today, one of those Fools, bbellemare, tapped Take-Two as a particularly timely opportunity:

The release of Grand Theft Auto 5 will be a changing point for [Take-Two]. The game is poised to change the gaming industry for the better. The Grand Theft Auto brand has been the foundation to how many game graphics and designs have evolved over the years, and now it's in position to change again. GTA games have always been popular among a wide age range. In the past, GTA games have always sold very well, and GTA5 will be no different. TTWO can be in position, for at least a [couple of years], for growth.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its four-star rating, Take-Two may not be your top choice.
