On CAPS, 406 of the 438 members who have rated Daktronics -- or 93% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include jwg1234556789 and darvant.

In October, jwg1234556789 described Daktronics glowingly:

Nobody does large-scale digital better than Daktronics. Theirs is the best in the industry. With the rising popularity of electronic billboards, watch for [Daktronics] to outperform the market for years to come.

In a more recent pitch from late last month, darvant taps the stock as a tasty bargain to boot:

Now that the P/E ratio has fallen from the stratosphere (and the share price as well), a realistic future vision of [Daktronics] is on the upside, especially since their products are unsurpassed, their debt negligible, and the management more honest than most. The wildly enthusiastic speculators are gone. The shorts will lose big time when sanity returns to the market. This stock bears the "Made in America" label proudly and bullishly worldwide.
