On CAPS, 98% of the 1,736 members who have rated Dynamic Materials believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include subsurfacemapper and notUSA.

Just last month, subsurfacemapper tapped Dynamic Materials as a timely opportunity: "I expect a steady growth 2011 through the next few years. ... [T]his a required business in so many plants, pipelines etc that it will grow as well as any infrastructure company can over the next few years."

As a leading provider of explosion-welded clad metal plates, Dynamic Materials remains a five-star play on the rebound of several capital-heavy industries -- especially the upstream oil and refining business. Currently, the company even sports a lower price-to-cash flow (12.3) than main rivals Halliburton (15.2) and Schlumberger (18.1), as well as other oil services stocks like Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHI  ) (19.0) and Weatherford (NYSE: WFT  ) (13.5).

CAPS member notUSA expands on the Dynamic Materials bull case:

[T]his company caters to heavy industry needs and will be a MAJOR beneficiary of any signs of a cyclical upturn. Many big oil companies, shipbuilders etc have been holding off new purchases and accumulating cash ... all they need is any improvement worldwide to start big buying again. ... Buy now for a MAJOR gain, as it appears worldwide growth via India/China South America/Indonesia is happening, with interest rates still coming down.
