On CAPS, 96% of the 613 members who have rated Giant Interactive believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, JoeArizona, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

With Chinese companies, it's always a crap shoot. But Giant Interactive seems to have a decent portfolio of games, and the Chinese economy doesn't appear to be in danger of cratering. That means lots of online gamers with disposable income looking for something to do online. Giant is going to do well in this environment.
