On CAPS, 86% of the 110 members who have rated AngioDynamics believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, ScalaAnalyst, succinctly summed up the AngioDynamics bull case for our community:

This is a nice small company that seems to do well competing against larger companies. Their growth rates the last few years along with their quarters show that company is going to stay with us for a while. ... Also the price to book ratio is also quite low. Altogether a good stock for the next year or three.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, AngioDynamics may not be your top choice.

We've found another growth play we are incredibly excited about -- excited enough to dub it "The Only Stock You Need to Profit from the NEW Technology Revolution."

    Debt is quite high for this company. Latest acquisition makes little sense and appears that they overpaid...for whatever it is that they actually acquired in the purchase.

    Company is not growing organically, only through acquisition, which they are funding by issuing debt. This is not a good model.

    Class action lawsuits are outstanding questioning compensation of CEO - which does raise the question of why the guy is getting paid so much, because it is surely not as a result of good company performance.
