Just last month, one of those Fools, All-Star TSIF, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

TeleNav specializes in personalized navigation and location based services. There are several company's, some new entering this field and barriers to entry seem small. On paper TeleNAV is rapidly growing its customer base and should have recurring services revenue. It does appear to maybe be spreading itself thin with the mobile advertising, but all segments seem to be firing currently. ... No debt, strong margins, solid cash flow, growing hiccups.
