Over on CAPS, 594 of the 604 members who have rated Zhongpin -- or 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include BWharam and mulledover.

In December, BWharam tapped the stock as a "yummy" opportunity:

This is one of the major suppliers for Yum! Brands [ (NYSE:YUM)] in China. As the world economies turn China will be a major beneficiary and YUM, and therefore [Zhongpin], will get their piece of the pie.

Also; I had read that [Zhongpin] is adding veggies to the items they supply. The only real downside I see is the dependency on YUM, I would like HOGS to be a little more diversified.

In a more recent pitch from January, mulledover added more meat to the bull case:

Earning estimates for 25% a year growth and sales that seem to be doubling year over year and a nice simple business (pork processing) in a fragmented industry. Comparing current revenues (500M) to those of Hormel [ (NYSE:HRL)], Tyson [ (NYSE:TSN)] (7B to 27B), it would appears that there is room for further growth.
