On CAPS, 93% of the 767 members who have rated Allot believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Rich Duprey (TMFCop), succinctly summed up the outperform case for our community:

I think Allot is losing out to Procera in many instances, but as the lead contender for [Verizon's] DPI business as it unveils its "6 strikes" policy and the possibility it is preparing itself to be acquired -- it announced it was repaying its Israeli OCS R&D grants back early (the loans prevent a sale of the company to foreign investors) -- I see its new, lower price attractive.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Allot may not be your top choice.

We've found another growth play we are incredibly excited about -- excited enough to dub it "The Only Stock You Need to Profit from the NEW Technology Revolution." We have compiled a special free report for investors to uncover this stock today. The report is 100% free, but it won't be here forever, so click here to access it now.
