Over on CAPS, fully 506 of the 535 members who have rated Seaspan -- some 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include alexsvs and JMJeffrey.

Just last month, alexsvs locked in on Seaspan's attractive long-term moves:

Superior business model of pairing long-term contracts with new ships prior to purchase, minimizing exposure to the spot market. They also cut their dividend in a conservative move from balance sheet management motivation, not from a debt maturity nor from a liquidity crunch perspective.

In a pitch from two weeks later, JMJeffrey expands on Seaspan's international tailwinds:

Big ship passing through! Well a little shipping company trying to capitalize on globalization. I think that the need for this industry (like trains) is not going away and that while capital intensive it will float and rise with expansion global commerce. Recent fear of debt and scaling back of key clients has the market trying to sink this ship, but while I cannot predict the short term I do believe that investors at these prices will be rewarded. Outperform!
