On CAPS, 98% of the 323 members who have rated Guggenheim BRIC believe the ETF will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include KeithGrable and FAOFool.

Having gotten on board a couple of years ago, KeithGrable nicely broke down the BRIC bull case: "Brazil and Russia have natural resources that will profit from the recovery. India and China have large reserves and a large population to provide a basis for growth."

Guggenheim BRIC, in particular, sports a portfolio whose stocks average brisk cash-flow growth of 26%. That's higher than that of other BRIC ETFs like SPDR S&P BRIC 40 (22%) and iShares MSCI BRIC (-9%).

CAPS member FAOFool elaborates on the bull case:

As the US economy recovers, these economies will enjoy greater growth. Additionally, these governments support domestic companies ... especially the larger ones. As a result, when the global economy recovers, more investment money will go into these countries, and, when combined with domestic growth (supported by government), they will do extremely well. I'm in!
