Over on CAPS, 490 of the 517 members who have rated RF Micro -- some 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include deepvein and All-Star ipfmanager, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community.

Two weeks ago, deepvein helped Fools weigh the stock's pros and cons: "Maybe a long term stock 'gamble' as potentially the company is in good position with some strong customers. However, risky and dependent on future product development."

Late last month, ipfmanager also urged our community to put their chips on the chip maker. Below is an excerpt, but don't forget to check out the full pitch here:

[RF Micro] is a world leader in its industry. ...

[RF Micro] has a 5- year EPS growth [estimate] of 12%. Are you kidding me? 4g is knocking on our door and China still has a 3g revolution ahead. There is no way that projection will stay there, I'd double or triple it ... I know it's a pipe-dream but with all that said, lets hope the stocks price could run up to $15-$20 with everything blowing in the right direction. ...

Even if way I'm way off which I know I am, we should beat the market on this one.
