Over on CAPS, 548 of the 570 members who have rated Mobile Mini -- or 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include afalk42 and CAPS All-Star TSIF.

In October, afalk42 helped our community focus on the long term: "OK, there might be a continuing slump for the next 12-18 months, but then this one is going to take off."

In a pitch from earlier this month, TSIF takes a balanced approach and elaborates on that bullish prediction:

This company is fairly well known, with a good following, and has survived other recessions. The Obama infrastructure play should help this company before their cash flow issues become a real problem, and give them a nice bump. Management is pretty savvy, but are buying assets even though cash flow is barely covering debt/expenses. Covenent calls on the debt could cause them to sell some equipment, but I believe Mini could weather a bit more downside if needed. The books look good, besides the cash reserves. Margins of 10% profit and 32% operating are decent and with their products, reputation, and scope of network should hold them up. I'll be watching this one closely.
