Can a stock that has outperformed the S&P 500 handily over the past five years possibly be a buy?

Investment dealer Odlum Brown has a “buy” rating on 3M Co., even with the stock up a cumulative 153 per cent over the past five years. That’s substantially more than the 119 per cent gain of the S&P 500, which itself has been a global superstar in the past few years.
