On CAPS, 97% of the 286 members who have rated Portugal Telecom believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star EvanBuck, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive income opportunity:

PT has a nice dividend for you to receive while you wait for the stock to rise. Beaten down because of Eurozone concerns, but PT has over half of its revenue derived outside of [Portugal]. PT has some good potential to grow over the next five years.
