On CAPS, 95% of the 222 members who have rated Kopin believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include tincansailor0115 and cdewolff.

Last year, tincansailor0115 touched on the attractive niche Kopin is working to fill:

KOPN is one of the leading developers of micro displays, and have an excellent opportunity to capture market segments that are being expanded by the frenzy to ... close the gap between micro-devices (cell phones - blackberries etc.) and larger displays.

Over the next five years, in fact, Kopin is expected to grow its bottom line at a brisk rate of 20% annually. That's faster than main rival RF Micro (15.8%), as well as other LCD display plays like AU Optronics (NYSE: AUO) (5.2%) and Corning (NYSE: GLW) (11.4%).

CAPS member cdewolff elaborates on the growth opportunity:

I have watched Kopin for many years now and think it has the potential to be a "Hidden Gem". Its market cap is very small and its forward looking PE is somewhat high. But, on the positive side this company is a high tech manufacturer of small color lcd displays that are finding there way into many products for the military and the headmounted video glass market. More importantly, they are one of the leading manufacturers that make low power heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) wafers for smart phones and other mobile devices. ... Put them on your watch list.
