Just yesterday, one of those Fools, klstylez01, tapped Teradata as a particularly timely turnaround opportunity:

Buy it while it's cheap. Big data is going to be the future. As the economy improves, so will business spending. There is no way companies can process all that data. I am estimating a huge run in the 2nd half of the year.
