Over on CAPS, 978 of the 1,024 members who have rated InterDigital -- 95.5% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include cut4dough and All-Star PinochleHead, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community.

Just last month, cut4dough singled out InterDigital as particularly perfect for this series: "I really think that this company is poised for greatness. With their patent portfolio, winning record in litigation of those patents, and the current acceptance and proliferation of 3+ G technologies, they should see tremendous upside."

In an earlier pitch, PinochleHead expands on the stock's patented potential:

Wireless communications are one of the few areas currently showing substantial growth, and [InterDigital] holds a slew of patents on circuitry that makes those communications possible. They just concluded legal actions and contracts that raise their presence from being in about 20% of the cell phones and 802.11 wireless devices on the planet to being in about 50% of them, and they could at some point be literally getting a little piece of change from the sale of every single one. THAT is an attractive growth prospect.
