On CAPS, 93% of the 767 members who have rated Allot believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Rich Duprey (TMFCop), succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community:

I think Allot is losing out to Procera in many instances, but as the lead contender for [Verizon's] DPI business as it unveils its "6 strikes" policy and the possibility it is preparing itself to be acquired -- it announced it was repaying its Israeli OCS R&D grants back early (the loans prevent a sale of the company to foreign investors) -- I see its new, lower price attractive.
