Over on CAPS, 402 of the 411 members who have rated Sutor -- some 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Scones and TSIF, both of whom are ranked in the top 7% of our community.

In May, Scones reminded members that Sutor "is a great stock for the long haul." Our All-Star concludes, "Infrastructure spending in China will be huge for this small cap, in my opinion."

In a pitch from last month, TSIF also urged Fools to become serious suitors for Sutor:

P/E of sub-5, a book value of 1.0, solid margins and manageable debt ... Sutor Technology exports from China to Asia, Europe and the US and is a producer of steel finishing fabrication products. Yes, they are crimped by the economy, but the China stimulus package is huge! Sutor's products, galvanized steel, are used in large and small products, from ships, automobiles to appliances. While the down economy may take its jabs, Sutor Tech is priced for disposal, and I'm more than willing to ride it back up.
