Over on CAPS, 247 of the 252 members who have rated Genoptix -- some 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Stars mrindependent, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community, and UltraLong, the second-ranked player in all of CAPS.

Just two weeks ago, mrindependent tapped Genoptix as "a rapidly growing blood and bone marrow diagnostics company." Our CAPS All-Star concludes: "This company's only real challenge is whether it can maintain high prices for its services. I expect continuing volatility with a strong upside bias."

In an earlier pitch, UltraLong pumped the most blood into the bull case. Below are a few excerpts, but be sure to check out the entire pitch here:

Genoptix main products, COMPASS and CHART facilitate the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of patients with potentially cancerous hematological disorders. ...

What I appreciate so much about Genoptix is its amazing potential. The company has by their estimates only 6% of the bone marrow market. ...

How about more actual fundamental figures? Cash ... lots and lots of cash. Around 106M dollars of it actually with zero, goose egg, nada, zippo debt! ...

The bone marrow market makes up what Genoptix describes as a 1 billion dollar a year industry and if they can simply double their exposure in that industry, that’d be another 60-70M dollars a year more. ...

I think a fair assessment taking into account their huge cash pile is $52-$54 within 24-30 months.
