Over on CAPS, fully 354 of the 364 members who have rated Quanta -- some 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include CAPS All-Star gtechie and tolstoy00.

Last month, gtechie wrote this powerful pitch on Quanta: "Wind, Solar, and Nuclear are the powers of the future. A company that provides two of the three sounds good to me. PWR is waaaaay down, probably from hedge funds selling for liquidity. Now it's time for fools to buy."

In a more recent pitch from last week, tolstoy00 shares that sentiment, tapping the stock as an interesting political play:

The U.S. needs to upgrade the power grid, and this is the company to do it. This company is also a major player in the wind power industry. Recently, some people have been down on the wind power-generation industry; however, I think this company will thrive for at least the next few years under the Obama presidency.
