On CAPS, 95% of the 448 members who have rated Liquidity Services believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, reeshau, touched on the tailwinds working in the stock's favor: "As the weak recovery puts pressure on governments and businesses alike, [Liquidity Services'] markets become more desirable to both buyers and sellers. This will continue to compound with the network effect of auction marketplaces, and drive growth."
