Earlier this year, one of those Fools, WildTing, succinctly summed up Intuit bull case for our community:

[T]he one thing that impressed me about this company is they don't look like they're afraid of innovation. A potential disruptor came by in Mint, and instead of running away or fighting it, they bought Mint and left it alone to develop. Solid company, solid financials, and still innovating. One of these "DUH" companies I wish I would've thought of earlier.
