Over on CAPS, fully 493 of the 516 members who have rated Dynegy -- some 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include roddyjoe and SurfaLot.

Last week, roddjoe touched on the power company's staying power: "[P]eople will not stop using power, plus, its close to a 52 week low. [Dynegy] will be around for a long time."

In a pitch from a few days earlier, SurfaLot taps Dynegy as a potent penny-stock asset play:

[Dynegy] sells to utilities. Price under $2/share reflects fear of being unable to rollover debt ([Dynegy] does not have to do this until 2011) and depression fears. ... Even in these worst case scenarios, the book value of this company is 5x current stock price and asset sales/liquidation value of company (incl. lt debt) would pay off common stockholders.
