Over on CAPS, 380 of the 416 All-Star members who have rated Volcom -- or 91% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include MagicDiligence and bullshiite, both of whom are ranked in the top 10% of our community.

Late last month, MagicDiligence noted that Volcom "is smartly run, financially sound, and has plenty of growth opportunities overseas. It's also extraordinarily cheap!"

In a pitch from two weeks earlier, bullshiite wrote that Volcom's ethos is what sets it apart:

I am not giving this an outperform because of the financial data, I am ignoring the analysts that warn about investing in retail ... This outperform is entirely based on a culture. A culture that won't disappear. A culture that would prefer a financial collapse that leads to anarchy. A culture that lives with their parents, works part time, and boards when they aren't in their garage practicing with their 'band' that is going to make it big one day. A culture that [Volcom] caters to.
