On CAPS, 98.5% of the 283 members who have rated WisdomTree India Earnings believe the ETF will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Stars OrionNebula and britpick, both of whom are ranked in the top 10% of our community.

This past summer, OrionNebula tapped the WisdomTree ETF as an obvious bargain opportunity: "I don't see how an index of profitable Indian companies fails to outperform the S&P over time, especially with interest rates already very high there, typically a good time to buy stocks, while people are freaking out."

WisdomTree India Earnings, in particular, sports a portfolio whose stocks average a cheapish forward P/E of 9.5. That represents a discount to other India ETF plays like PowerShares India (12.1) and iShares S&P India Nifty 50 (14.5).

CAPS member britpick elaborates on the WisdomTree ETF's bull case:

India has spent much of the recent past becoming the service centre to the rest of the world, but is progressively opening its markets to other countries. [Is] looking to focus on building its infrastructure to meet the growing demand created by the growing wealth of the nation. It is looking to world class partners to assist in the evolution of its capabilities and sustainability, especially in the growth of its natural resources industry.
