On CAPS, 94% of the 67 members who have rated IntraLinks believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include pawpaw1941 and All-Star TSIF, who is ranked in the top 0.1% of our community.

Just last month, pawpaw1941 tapped IntraLinks as cheap way to go for growth:

This stock has an excellent menu of services and a growing customer base. It has recently increased its sales force and introduced a new product/service. It is selling at a relatively low price per share and this should make it a take-over target.

Over the next five years, in fact, IntraLinks is expected to grow its bottom line at a brisk rate of 22.5% annually. That's faster than much larger rivals like EMC (16.9%), Google (19.1%), and IBM (11.1%).

CAPS All-Star TSIF elaborates on the company's recent earnings-miss as possible bargain opportunity:

Intralink is in the business of online business software. It guided down which is always punishment and typically more severe if your timing stinks as badly as IntraLinks did and you're reporting on a strong market down day. This combination can lead me to sometimes wonder if the punishment is excessive. ... My basis for calling this one and seeing if it sinks further into the bottom mud is that the profit outlook is decent for this company which has had intermittent quarterly losses. The $0.13 estimated profit will give it some breathing room. ... Revenue was up 15% yoy for the same quarter, and the $0.01 profit certainly beats the $0.22 loss from last year. The positive cash flow is also a plus.
