Over on CAPS, fully 435 of the 473 members who have rated Drew -- some 92% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include SkinInvest and TMFmrquakeroats.

In January, SkinInvest touched on the supertrend working in Drew's favor: "Baby boomers are hitting that ripe old retirement age soon and this stock is cheap right now!"

In a more recent pitch from last month, TMFmrquakeroats breaks down the bargain for our community:

As we're getting deeper in to the recession and [Drew] gets cheaper and cheaper relative to normal long-term earning power, the better pop this stock will get when we finally hit bottom. [Drew] is certainly capable of earning well over $1.00 per share in a more "normal" or stable economy. The stock is selling for $7/$8. That's just cheap, so I'm happy to label [Drew] a solid outperform.
