Just last week, one of those bulls, morowulf, tapped Credit Acceptance as a timely trade:

I think this stock may make a big move in the next few weeks. It has been forming a classic cup and handle pattern over the past 6 months. In the past couple of weeks it has been forming the handle to shake-off weary investors before the next big move. It has consistent EPS growth, high ROE, and the number of outstanding shares have been decreasing. If it doesn't blow up first because of their risky loans or because of their high leverage, I think this one could trade as high as $200 based upon EPS growth.
