Just yesterday, Motley Fool advisor and CIO Andy Cross (TMFOpie) succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Building a platform to help bond investors buy and sell bond positions more effectively. Business has been on a tear recently pushing the earnings multiple a bit higher but I still believe in the next 3-5 years this company will be worth much more than $52 per share based on potential growth rates and adoption.
