On CAPS, 242 of the 252 members who have rated Integral Systems -- 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include MavenPicker and All-Star mrindependent, who is ranked in the top 5% of our community.

Just two weeks ago, MavenPicker urged Fools to integrate Integral Systems into their portfolios:

Involvement in satellite and simulation technology provides diversity. Great fundamentals, low PE, little debt and good growth in earnings. Management efficiency excellent. All factors make this a long-term pick.

In a pitch from late June, mrindependent also liked the stock's chances of launching into orbit:

Building satellite ground systems and equipment sounds like a sexy growth business. I am looking for tech stocks because I believe technology is the best bet for this troubled economy. Integral Systems seems to be marching through the downturn unfazed and valuation looks very cheap.
