Over on CAPS, fully 389 of the 408 members who have rated Interactive Intelligence -- some 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include djwhr1 and gallunltd.

Last month, djwhr1 described the stock in glowing bullish terms:

Great small company with very successful products and good service and maintenance revenues. Good cash position with no debt. Management seems competent and focused on longer term performance. Low float.

In a pitch later in the month, gallunltd took a more balanced approach toward Interactive, writing:

This company I like but I worry about the industry. On the plus side: zero debt, positive level of ownership, good margins, and plenty of cash. So what's my problem? I have no idea the time it will take to regain what the economic dark period has taken away. I suppose that is true for all stocks but I don't own all stocks.
