Over on CAPS, 556 of the 577 All-Star members who have rated Tata Motors -- some 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These All-Star bulls include mkeszler and MJKpayday, both of whom are ranked in the top 10% of our community.

In April 2007, mkeszler fearlessly forecasted that Tata "Will become world's largest automaker by number of cars sold some day soon. The growth in India is unbelievable. Roads are being constructed everywhere...."

A more recent pitch from MJKpayday in January of this year shared that bullish belief, noting Tata's tasty prospects outside of India, as well:

An outperform for India's TATA motors is like an outperform for a sure up and coming underdog, not just a pick for one emerging country, but a company for all emerging countries. TATA motors is India's most recognized industrial company with interest in vehicles, engines, marine applications, information technology services and construction. They've experienced decades of growth and are sure to profit through the next few decades as not just India's up and coming middle class arrives, but the middle class of much of Asia arrives.
