It's not just bull. All-time highs set by a dozen stocks aren't merely a byproduct of the market's record high this week. The companies behind these stocks are winning over investors with good fundamentals and strong strategies. Netflix is increasingly viewed as a TV network with original programming, a strength that could broaden its audience. Boeing has impressed investors by building planes faster than ever. And Starbucks has delivered strong growth in the Americas and Asia, where it has opened more coffee shops. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is up 21 percent this year, but these stocks are up even more — from 24 percent to a huge 231 percent for Netflix
