Just last month, one of those bulls, Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner (TMFSpiffyPop), took another shot at Syneron:

This former Rule Breaker has bounced back pretty well from our sell recommendation in 2009. It has a lot of cash (always did), so the underlying business isn't priced for much. I'll rejoin the fray on this one and give it another green thumb. Please note, this may be a contrary indicator: I struck out in my first at-bat with [Syneron].
