On CAPS, 97% of the 886 members who have rated POSCO believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star valuemoney, who is ranked in the top 0.1% of our community, and AlexisMachine.

Late last month, valuemoney highlighted the Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) holding as a super-solid selection: "Buffett says No. 1 steel maker and commodity play. Who am I to argue. And adding to CAPS on this huge pullback."

In a pitch from the same day, AlexisMachine agrees with that bullishness. Here's an excerpt:

Longer term POSCO's earnings will increase on consolidation of the global steel industry, overseas growth initiatives, rising demand for durable goods in Asia, a better product mix, and greater control of raw materials. POSCO is also a vehicle to capitalize on the consolidation of the global steel industry and growth in durable goods demand in Asia. ... Coupled with the value priced shares of the stock now ... I view this as an excellent addition to ones portfolio at the current price it is selling for.
