On CAPS, 95% of the 96 members who have rated Procera believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

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

The Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) market will be a $2 billion business in 2 years and Procera will be a leader in both the enterprise market that is its specialty and among ISPs. While [Allot] is seen as the leader for [Verizon's] DPI business, [Procera] could win [AT&T's].
