Over on CAPS, some 95% of the 1,051 members who have rated Honeywell believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star zk116, who is ranked in the top 2% of our community, and sett0047.

Late last month, zk116 tapped the stock as a fundamental and technical turnaround opportunity:

Great fundamentals and chart. Covers both transportation and defense sectors, both rebound well. Also, price has been beaten up over the past year more than deserved for their lower expected earnings.

In a pitch from two weeks ago, sett0047 expands on Honeywell as one honey of an infrastructure play:

Honeywell will benefit immensely through partnerships with utility companies and its expertise in building automation and controls used to reduce and manage energy usage in large buildings. Much of the growth in the energy space will be offset in the short-term from a decline in aerospace and military markets, but the stock is priced for value today (w/ a nice dividend) and does not reflect growth prospects of many end markets.
