On CAPS, 97% of the 738 members who have rated Guangshen believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this month, one of those Fools, henbrobrice, succinctly summed up the Guangshen bull case for our community:

With due diligence and the necessity of rail in a growing economy, I think this should be a solid play. Its dividends (given on a yearly basis) have increased or been maintained for 5 straight years. Its P/E ratio is less than 16 so it has been fairly valued in my estimation.
