On CAPS, 95% of the 440 members who have rated 3SBio believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Stars 00100 and TMFBreakerTAllan, both of whom are ranked in the top 5% of our community.

Late last year, 00100 tapped 3SBio as a healthy way to gain exposure to the Far East: "Huge sales growth rate. No debt. Plenty of cash. Chinese company with connections and dubious products by Western standards. But the approach is successful in light of historical perceptions in China."

In a pitch from two weeks ago, TMFBreakerTAllan follows that bullish line of thinking:

3SBio is one of China's leading maker of biogeneric drugs. ... This company has the ability to partner with established companies like AMAG Pharm. to license drugs to bring to market in China as it recently did for Feraheme, an iron replacement therapy already approved in the USA. 3SBio can continue to expand its revenues in this way as well as developing novel drugs. As long as 3SBio remains profitable in the coming quarters, this company will begin to earn market multiples in line with other profitable biotech companies.
