Over on CAPS, fully 597 of the 623 members who have rated Perini -- some 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include BudandMolly and TSIF.

Last month, BudandMolly constructed this simple outperform case: "Below book, low debt, lots of cash. Infrastructure play, strong company that will survive the downturn."

In a pitch from five days later, TSIF elaborates on those bullish qualities:

Consistant Growth, VERY low debt. Debt used to expand. Purchase of Keating very timely. Good infrastructure play that is not already over bought in overly anticipated hype. PE sub 6, room to grow. Good cash flow. P/B less than one. Margins not super, but in a recession getting any work to keep your business operating with fierce competition can reduce margins. Building, Civil and management services all growing.
