On CAPS, 98.6% of the 1,297 members who have rated inVentiv believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Hozer02 and All-Star investorpoet2, who is ranked in the top 15% of our community.

Two months ago, Hozer02 highlighted inVentiv's clearly improving health: "Cost cutting and diversification from acquisitions providing improved efficiency and streamlining. I like it to rebound when the health reform dust settles."

In a pitch from late last month, investorpoet2 bolts on a more detailed bull case. Here's an excerpt:

They serve the pharmaceutical industry. Through acquisition they have added more and more services, and through cross-selling are hoping to be a one-stop shop for many companies looking to outsource some of their business functions. ...

Even if the company produces no organic growth over the next year, with their level of cash flow (which will show up on the earnings statements soon), bolt on acquisitions should commence soon, leading to higher earnings and greater value for shareholders. I look for InVentiv to trade around 12-15x operating cash flow in 2010, resulting in a share price of $40. Easily a double from here.
