On CAPS, 97% of the 557 members who have rated Oi believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, stockstar69, succinctly summed up the Oi bull case for our community:

Well established in Brazil. [Portugal Telecom], among others are big backers and need Oi to stay alive as an investment tool. Dividend is huge. ... [S]ecure dividend rating and Morningstar rates this stock a 4 star buy.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Oi may not be your top choice.

    STOCKSTAR 69 -

    I am a bit confused as to when the actual dividend payment dates of OBIR actually are. I have two different possibilities at the moment. I believe that there are 4 dates. Another possibility is two dates. Are there any Friendly Fools out there that can help me? Thanks!

    BTW- Other sites list the dividend yield of OBIR as high as 66.5%.
