Just last month, one of those Fools, NoblyNaive, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

Looks like a solid company in a good market, suffering from bad press. I like the fact that insiders have a large stake in the company. ... I have been watching EBIX float down for a while, waiting for bottom to form and an opportune time to get in. ... $16.19 looks like a good price to get in.
