Over on CAPS, fully 278 of the 284 All-Star members who have rated America Movil -- some 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These All-Star bulls include Guardian21 and HatchingPlans, both of whom are ranked in the top 5% of our community.

In May, Guardian21 noted that America Movil "is well positioned to benefit from the growth of wireless communications in emerging Latin American markets. ... Finally, AMX's share buyback will help to support the stock."

A more recent pitch by HatchingPlans in June shares that bullish outlook, highlighting a recent earnings miss as a potential buying opportunity:

Lots of people got unnecessarily scared and got out, giving a solid price. Well, they missed that earnings report because they are upgrading their networks. This is a good thing. At this point, they should have a more powerful wireless EDGE network than AT&T (NYSE:T) or Verizon... And with all these talks of an iPhone startup, that would mean exclusive rights to sell a hot phone in a hot market, with probably the best wireless internet network in the world.

Plus, they're a big stable company with solid growth and a lot of untapped customer potential. Check it out!
