Earlier this month, one of those Fools, troym72, tapped Mitcham as a timely bargain opportunity:

[Mitcham's] stock has been punished severely after their earnings miss for 1Q2012. ... This creates a great buy opportunity for the smart investor who does not just react to negative news. If you look at [Mitcham's] EPS estimates ($2.44/share) for 2012. Even if [Mitcham] maintains a modest P/E of 10, the stock is valued at $24 per share. ... Most analysts have the 1yr target for [Mitcham] in the [$30s]. I just don't see how you can't pick up this stock at $17/share.

If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Mitcham may not be your top choice.
