On CAPS, 99% of the 290 members who have rated Ituran believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include guyusj and dumberthanafool.

Earlier this year, guyusj tapped Ituran as an enticing income opportunity: "[T]his is a very promising company with solid growth prospects. I also like their attitude regarding giving money back to shareholders."

Ituran even boasts a robust three-year average operating margin of 20.4%. That's much higher than the 10.7% figures from rivals Pointer and Trimble, let alone LoJack's average negative margin of -1.2%.

CAPS member dumberthanafool elaborates on the Ituran bull case:

Does a lot of business in Argentina and Brazil, in addition to Israel and the U.S. Big dividend (though not a stable, American-style dividend, it fluctuates European-style). Excellent balance sheet. ROA and ROE have been recovering in the last two years. ... While I continue to add to my "safe" large-cap quality stock holdings, my strategy this year, which I have already been implementing, is to make "riskier" bets (for me) in ETFs of interest ... and to look for high quality SMALL-cap companies. By high quality, I mean companies with great balance sheets, decent price to earnings and/or price/FCF ratios, stable or growing and decent ROE, rational business plans, etc. I put ITRN in this category.
