On CAPS, 93% of the 2,081 members who have rated Sandisk believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Late last month, one of those Fools, callumturcan, tapped the stock as a particularly smart selection:

Sandisk is heavily involved in the NOR, NAND, and SSD semiconductor equipment all these [smart phones] use, so I'm bullish on [Sandisk]. It should continue to take some market share away from the other semiconductor companies, which will increase its growth even more. ... The smart phone market is shooting up, and this company is a great way to get exposure to it. ... [I]t has a P/E of 10.2 compared to an industry average of 12.8. Plus, as consumer spending increases, so will demand for their flash drives, another area for growth. And with China slated to overtake the US next year in [annual PC sales], all those middle class Chinese PC owners will need flash drives.
