On CAPS, 90% of the 295 members who have rated Fusion-io believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, mwlove, tapped Fusion-io as a particularly attractive turnaround pick:

I love the products this company makes. The change in CEO caused the stock to tank, but it was for the best. The new CEO, Shane Robison, says he has three goals: 1) expansion into new customers and geographies; (2) integration of recent acquisitions and (3) innovate at a faster rate than competitors. The company needs to diversify beyond Apple and Facebook but Robison is the guy to get it done.

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