Earlier this week, one of those Fools, troym72, succinctly summed up the Kodiak bull case for our community:

Trying to cash in on this growth story. The P/E is quite high at 25, but I think Kodiak is growing fast enough to support a continued rise in share prices. Growth obviously can't continue at their current rate, but even if they maintain half or 1/4 of their current growth rates, Kodiak will be a multi-bagger.
