CAPS All-Star huddaman elaborates on the Quality Systems bull case:

In spite of the high P/E ... its a strong buy. There appears to be a lot of happy times (party) for this business ahead. The higher P/E can be thought of as the cover charge. The risk is that the simply growth won't materialize, P/E will shrink and you will lose the cover charge. But the upshot is, the high growth will make you lot of mad money.
