On CAPS, 96% of the 1,354 members who have rated Satyam believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Ignoramia and frothyjowels.

Just last week, Ignoramia noted that Satyam was steadily getting over its scandalous situation:

The new management team and the governance structure has restored the company's tarnished image as a result of Ex-CEO's fraudulent effort to cook books. While we do not know all of the accounts as yet and the reconciled accounts will be disclosed on June 30th, 2010 or earlier. … I am confident that the picture will be brighter than what most investors are expecting.

In a pitch from last month, frothyjowels follows that line of thinking:

Although there has been some criticism of Satyam in the wake of the accounting scandal the proportions of which have only recently been fully revealed, the company still stands in great position in comparison to its peers. Their long-term contracts with major international corporations remain mostly intact. I see little reason to expect that the stock will not recover given its astoundingly low PE and the dedication of its new ownership to restoring its reputation and industry-position.
