On CAPS, 91% of the 1,246 members who have rated Micron believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include trooper999 and larryweston.

Just last month, trooper999 tapped the stock as a surprisingly stable selection: 

It is a risky call to go long with a tech in this market but Micron is a very well managed company. They are getting their fiscal house in order and this will show up as earnings growth. This will keep the stock price level or higher in a down market.

Currently, Micron even sports a rather paltry price-to-cash flow of 3.1. That represents a discount to listed rivals Rambus (29.9), SanDisk (7.3), and Spansion (39.1).

CAPS member larryweston elaborates on the Micron bull case:

The stock despite a 30% rise in the last few months is significantly undervalued based on peer market cap, P/E, PEG, etc. ratios. Their joint venture with Intel [IM Flash Technologies] and their advanced SSD technologies should continue to fuel growth and profitability in the next year.
