Over on CAPS, some 97% of the 637 members who have rated China Precision believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include MikeBobulinski and All-Star TSIF, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community.

In May, MikeBoublinski singled out the small cap as a steely way to play the Far East:

Niche market steel company in China. Given China's potential and the fact that [China Precision] is sitting in the middle of a bunch of pent up spending, I am thinking it is only a matter of time before [China Precision] pops back up to near the $10 per share mark.

In a pitch from last week, TSIF gets a bit more precise about China Precision's potential:

China Precision Steel, as one might expect is not recession resistant. The stimulus and GDP in China however is vastly stronger than here in the US. ... The cost of moving materials and finished products helps make China Precision a strong competitive play for the regional demands. China Precision's specialty and custom parts are required in a stimulus play. ... A third cold rolling plant should be coming online shortly, and while the balance of capacity with the economy can be tricky, China Precision Steel is poised to roll out the steel and roll up the revenue.
