Over on CAPS, 863 of the 895 members who have rated North American Palladium -- or 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include bottomfeedr and kkconway.

Last week, bottomfeedr identified a few of the stock's "catalysts" for our community:

Catalyst metals are rare, and will be utilized in transforming whatever green energy that is developed. [Platinum Group Metals] have been hammered, and this stock has a track record of bouncing with the price of [Platinum Group Metals].

In a pitch from four days later, kkconway expands on the company's long-term tailwinds:

People will start buying cars again someday. [North American Palladium] will supply the palladium for their catalytic converters. Russia's reserves are depleting, and [North American Palladium] has a P/Book of 0.4 at today's price, and plenty of cash to wait out the demand trough.
