Over on CAPS, fully 547 of the 570 members who have rated Immucor -- some 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star tenmiles, the sixth-ranked player in all of CAPS, and Weequay2.

Just last month, tenmiles tapped Immucor as a bloody good deal:

Large short position in company recently drove it down from $30 range ... Financial flexible company -- debt free with healthy ROE and reasonable forward P/E. Longer term play on healthcare efficiency from diagnostic testing improvements. Looks pretty cheap in here long term in the mid-teens.

In a pitch from later that day, weequay2 agrees on the stock being a bloodied and bruised bargain:

Siding with tenmiles and others on the positive financial aspects of this company. Also the recent sell off and 15% drop open up an even better buying window. [Immucor] was hit hard by the [Department of Justice] investigation and then hit again in June by the FDA threatening to revoke their ability to sell their blood reagents. I think that the market over reacted to the FDA news on top already low prices. [Immucor] says they have been working to fix the quality issues related to the FDA for some time now.
