On CAPS, 88% of the 60 members who have rated SMART believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, tapped SMART as a timely bargain opportunity:

Beaten down of late and sitting by its 52 week low again.

Fairly high debt load, but has been profitable during each of the last 7 quarters and has paid a large portion of their debt down. Authorized a share repurchase program of 4 million shares last year as well.

Interesting concept and largely undervalued with a forward P/E of 6 and a 5 year PEG of .3. Long term buy as it will take time for the education market to settle, but I believe SMART will be a long term winner.
