Over on CAPS, 636 of the 658 members who have rated Nam Tai -- or 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include CAPS All-Star AnarcoCapitalist and thwga.

Late last week, AnarcoCapitalist added up the Nam Tai bull case for our community: "[Dividend yield] currently at 16%, Cash on hand, Practically no debt, huge growth & China = Outperforming the S&P 500 even in a world recession."

In a pitch from last month, thwga shares that bullishness and taps Nam Tai as a rather timely opportunity:

Very versatile company that seems to be able to make electronic parts for almost any kind of technology. Big companies will contract to companies like this to make bread boards for their products because [Nam Tai] can do it much cheaper by specializing. PE way low and high dividend.
