On CAPS, 95% of the 282 members who have rated Resource Capital believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include rhoff367 and ParisHgtsBruce.

Earlier this year, rhoff367 succinctly summed up the Resource Capital bull case: "Great dividends, moderate growth."

CAPS member ParisHgtsBruce expands on the income opportunity:

The wildly forecast downturn in commercial real estate did not materialize. The housing market seems to be leveling off and will most likely continue along a rocky bottom. Although the fed has talked and push rates down, the market seems to have calmed and may be stabilizing at normal levels. Solid companies not overly involved in the housing sector should continue to perform well and provide good dividends.
