Over on CAPS, fully 2,439 of the 2,628 members who have rated Oracle -- some 93% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include coolshyguy and NoTimeForKarma.

Last month, coolshyguy noted that Oracle "has doubled its revenue and profit since 2005 … Some of very strategic acquisitions include Hyperion, PSoft, BEA, Siebel, JDE, Stellent. The revenues generated by these acquisitions are not reflected in the stock price right now."

In an earlier pitch from December, NoTimeForKarma expands on Oracle's expansion strategy:

Oracle continues to make good business decisions and good technology decisions. They are the de-facto database application for major DB applications. They are continuing to add additional application suites to their offerings and are breaking new ground left and right. They are sized good enough to weather any start-up issues they might have with these new ventures.
