Over on CAPS, 589 of the 613 members who have rated E-House -- or 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star LatePlay, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community, and balabanovj.

Just last week, LatePlay brought the stock's fundamentals to our community's attention: "Chinese real estate. Huge margins, good returns."

In an earlier pitch from last year, balabanovj elaborates on E-House's solid foundation:

[E-House] has been growing revenue and earnings hand over fist. They are self described as being "asset light," which means ... the cash flow comes from their research, services, and sales. They also have a healthy amount of cash on the books to take advantage of any market downturns, whether it's scooping up competitors or investing in distressed properties. ... When the market rebounds, and the Chinese masses start snapping up properties, [E-House] may well be one of the best growth stories around and with real estate, there are few limits to their growth in a market like China's. On average, I'm looking for continued growth in the 40-50% range over a very long stretch for this company.
