On CAPS, 93% of the 137 members who have rated Computer Programs believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, Motley Fool Co-Founder David Gardner (TMFSpiffyPop), succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community:

Niche player serving rural hospitals and hard to compete with on that terrain. Decent dividend. Long operating history. Electronic health records are a good space. That said, as the company further grows into its niche, it's not clear to me a couple years out that there is meaningful growth past that. Could be a buyout candidate at some point. Anyway, for the next couple of years: Outperform.
