On CAPS, 95% of the 494 members who have rated Liquidity Services believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, TMFTwoCoins, tapped the stock's recent pullback as a particularly attractive buy-in opportunity: "Not a sexy business, but who cares as long as it makes money. With a 20% sell off, I'll bite. Expecting a long term winner, and got it at a discount."
