Over on CAPS, fully 1,350 of the 1,391 members who have rated ArcelorMittal -- some 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include CAPS All-Star BigFatBEAR, who is ranked in the top 0.5% of our community, and uglyinvestor.

Two weeks ago, BigFatBEAR tapped ArcelorMittal as an interesting income opportunity:

If you're looking to establish a real life buy-and-hold position, I'd maybe say just dollar-cost average into it, rather than trying to time it. With a 5% yield, even if it gets trimmed, you're still looking at a solid investment.

In an earlier pitch from late December, uglyinvestor cites the stock's attractive price (which has remained relatively unchanged) as reason to get in:

The steel biz is a very non-visionary business that has stagnated until the arrival of Lakshmi Mittal on the scene. Mr. Mittal and his management team are super pro-active (look at biz cycle reductions they have made in the downturn) This is a great biz run by a great mind, making serious inroad investments into China (which will be a huge consumer of steel in the coming years-infrastructure projects). [Arcelor Mittal] is trading at much less than book value, and in my view is a complete bargain now.
