Over on CAPS, 208 of the 230 members who have rated NCR -- some 90% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include tenmiles, who is ranked fifth in all of CAPS-dom, and Mugglegirl.

In February, tenmiles highlighted NCR's fourth-quarter earnings miss (and subsequent price plunge) as an opportunity to pounce: "After today's selloff, NCR looks attractive for long term. Mid-teen [return on equity], significant free cash flow, $400 million in net cash; risk/reward seems in favor of longs who can wait it out for a few years."

In a more recent pitch from last week, Mugglegirl cites NCR's diversified nature as a good reason to remain confident:

NCR is currently focused on and investing in an enterprise-wide continuous improvement initiative. Their business model is not a simple one; their eggs are definitely not all in one basket. One of their solutions is helping the medical industry go paperless--which has been mentioned by Obama recently. This company has been around for 125 years and I think they'll be around for another 125.
