On CAPS, 96% of the 543 members who have rated Accuray believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include ssbb123 and All-Star rknapton.

Just last week, ssbb123 cut right to the bull case:

Maker of the Cyberknife non-invasive cancer killer. No more chemo and invasive surgery? [S]ounds good to me. [$556] million backlog of orders, 25% contingent due to the poor economy. When the economy picks up it will take off.

In an earlier pitch, rknapton operates even further. Here's an excerpt:

According to their investor fact sheet, there may be an opportunity for 7,136 units worldwide. Even if just a small fraction of this really occurs, [Accuray] will benefit tremendously. ...

[Y]ou’d naturally think that this type of treatment for the end users would be recession proof. Speaking of sensitivity to the economy, one of the main points they tried to get across in their last conference call is that while replacement equipment in hospitals and medical clinics is experiencing a slow-down, the CyberKnife is not replacement equipment, and is indeed a driver of growth for new patients where CyberKnife units are installed.
