Just yesterday, one of those Fools, TMFTheRealDeal, succinctly summed up the BofI bull case for our community:

Just as Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) dominated retail by disrupting brick-and-mortar retail stores, BOFI is in the same position when it comes to banks. A structural cost advantage and trends pointing toward increased utilization of Internet-based solutions bode well for BOFI. And as it expands, margins should improve due to scalability of the business. Excellent long-term potential here.
