On CAPS, 99% of the 135 members who have rated RPX believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, MrRoell, brought RPX's seemingly solid fundamentals to our community's attention:

The company has a strong ROE of 11.3%, low P/E of 13 and high net margin of 19% and ZERO debt. With over $200 million in cash ($4.30 per share). All of this presents an incredible bargain for a growing company with plenty of book value ($6.77 per share). A definite buy in my book.
