On CAPS, all 30 of the members who have rated Power Solutions believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Earlier today, one of those bulls, TMFChaodan, tapped the stock as a rather speculative, but potentially powerful momentum play:

Power Solutions seems like it is headed in an upward trajectory. However this growth is heavily dependent on the expected EPA regulations tightening which is already happening. When the EPA tightens its regulations, it is usually the case that other countries will also move toward doing the same. PSIX already has strategic partnership with MAT (an OEM that has most of the market share in China for industrial forklifts). The pie is going to expand.

On the other hand, I'm not exactly sure if Power Solutions would be the best positioned among its competitors to take advantage of the widening pie (also, there is the question of whether or not the pie will actually widen, given that it is all very political).
