6. Quantum Corp. (QTM)

Company Profile: Quantum is a global storage company specializing in backup, recovery and archive services. It provides a range of disk, tape and software services.

Share Price: $3.72 (Dec. 17)

2010 Stock Performance: 27%

Analyst Consensus: Seven analysts have a "buy" rating on Quantum shares. The only other analyst covering the stock has a "hold" rating on shares.

Bullish Case: Capstone Investments analyst Shebly Seyrafi initiated coverage of Quantum with a "buy" rating and $4.50 price target, noting that the company could be an attractive acquisition target for potential acquirers such as Dell (DELL), Oracle (ORCL) or NetApp (NTAP).

"[Quantum] could be an attractive target as it offers attractive data deduplication technology and the company's price (less than $1 billion) is small enough to attract other companies for a 'tuck-in'-type acquisition," Seyrafi wrote. "QTM has a formidable data deduplication offering that is expected to roughly double in revenue this fiscal year."
