Over on CAPS, 348 of the 357 members who have rated EnerSys -- some 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star Trimalerus, who is ranked in the top 0.6% of our community, and ginchinchil.

Late last month, Trimalerus reminded our community that "all of the big auto makers are planning on unveiling a plug-in hybrid car in the next year." Our CAPS member concludes: "With dwindling oil supplies battery technology is going to be a critical industry in our greener future and this company is well positioned to profit from the growth in this sector."

In a pitch from earlier in the month, ginchinchil taps the stock as a power play on government spending:

The company is well positioned and although the demand for their batteries will decrease, they will still be widely needed. But the big bonanza will come with the stimulus money. There is an extraordinary amount of money designated for battery R & D and being the US's largest battery company, Enersys stands to be the biggest recipient. I think this company is a strong buy, especially at the current prices.
