Just yesterday, one of those Fools, RumbachStock, succinctly summed up the Apco bull case for our community:

Great growth prospects. This stock was punished excessively for one bad quarter. I believe it will quickly resume the extraordinary growth it has exhibited in the last few years. This is a small, fast-growing company selling at a 10% earnings yield. Bargain!
