On CAPS, 97% of the 2,515 members who have rated Tata Motors believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star jamespeer, who is ranked in the top 5% of our community, and 20PercentPM.

Four days ago, jamespeer helped steer Fools toward the stock:

The overwhelming majority of all motor vehicles sold in India are made by [Tata]. India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, with a population over 1 billion. Government is spending billions on highway road infrastructure. While the auto industry in India booms over the next 5 years, this company will benefit enormously.

In a pitch from two weeks ago, 20PercentPM also pointed out Tata's emerging pattern:

India has the 2nd largest labor force in the world and one of the fastest growing economies. ... They have plans to sell the Nano in Europe, US, Thailand and maybe even Africa. India's small car exports increased 5 times in 5 years. That will get them name recognition, but the real profits come from their trucks. Their trucks and buses are sold in many countries, including the fast growing Middle East. ... I think everything is looking up for India and Tata stock!
