On CAPS, 93.5% of the 2,309 members who have rated Kraft believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star edwjm, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community, and freespazz.

Just two days ago, edwjm tapped Kraft as a tasty income opportunity:

It has many of the world's best brand names. At the current price of $28.53, the p/e is about [16.75] and the dividend is over 4%. I believe than much of the recent weakness in the stock is due to dissatisfaction with recent management decisions, especially the Cadbury acquisition. But, with that now factored into the price, the path from here should lead upwards.

In a pitch from late last month, freespazz shares that sentiment:

Give this bigboy time to truly integrate its latest buy. Kraft isn't going anywhere and it's only getting bigger. Buffett gave them a hard time on how much they paid for Cadbury but the oracle himself isn't lowering [Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B)] holding of the company so who cares! In the long-term this company will work as an investment with its steady pricing and decent return of capital through dividends. [R]einvest and let it ride!
