On CAPS, all but one of the 52 members who have rated EGShares Brazil Infrastructure believe the ETF will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include rmachado1983 and BillZack.

Last year, rmachado1983 tapped the ETF as a booming way to get exposed to Brazil: "The Brazilian economy is really turning around. ... With the hosting of the Olympics and World Cup in the coming years this infrastructure ETF should really get a lift."

Since its inception in early 2010, EGShares Brazil Infrastructure has even outperformed other Brazil ETF plays like iShares MSCI Brazil and iShares Latin America 40.

CAPS member BillZack elaborates on the bull case:

Brazil is booming. Take into account this ETF targets Brazilian companies that provide infrastructure to that country, and the increase in that country's employment base and tax revenue, this should be a winner! Add in the Olympic Games coming to Rio, and the expansion going on there ... roads, bridges, airports, etc. I like this ETF play a lot!
