On CAPS, 96% of the 295 of the members who have rated Mesabi believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last week , one of those bulls, cajun1958, tapped Mesabi as a solid bargain opportunity:

It appears that the slowing down of demand in China has already been factored into the stock [price]. I have a soft spot for [Mesabi] since I bought it under $10 when the US steel industry was declared [dead on arrival]. However, increased domestic industrial demand from [AK Steel], auto makers, appliance makers etc. make this cheap stock a buy and a great income pick.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, Mesabi may not be your top choice.
