On CAPS, 95% of the 752 members who have rated EnerNOC believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include TMPhool and Clint35.

Earlier this week, TMPhool tapped EnerNOC as an attractive bargain:

Long term winner. Main risks stem from a concentration of customers. As the need for this service grows, so will their customer base. Good value at this price.

Over the next five years, in fact, EnerNOC is expected to grow its bottom line at a brisk rate of 21.5% annually. That's faster than much larger energy management consultants such as Accenture (9.7%), Honeywell (14.6%), and Johnson Controls (17.6%).

CAPS member Clint35 expands on EnerNOC's favorable risk/reward profile:

The title of [Alyce Lomax's] article "Stock up on dramamine and hold on tight" is the perfect description for this stock. I had it picked as an outperform but I couldn't take the ups and downs. Mostly downs. But this is a much better price, so I think I'll be ok this time. I think this company could be huge. Considering what they do, I'm sure there's demand all over the world.
