On CAPS, 97% of the 2,139 members who have rated ArcelorMittal believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Just last month, one of those bulls, ennui, tapped ArcelorMittal as a particularly solid income opportunity:

Huge international steel producer. Good dividend. Good long term prospects. As long as the world's economies are muddling along, so will the stock. However, at the first hint of a recovery, this one will take off. Since it is well priced at the moment, and pays a good dividend, I am happy to be a buyer at these prices. ...

It may take a good, long time to reach that "fair value price," but with a [dividend yield] of 4%, you are getting well paid for the wait.

If you want market-beating 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 its four-star rating, ArcelorMittal may not be your top choice.
