On CAPS, 99% of the 345 All-Star members who have rated China Security believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include TMFBreakerJava and Ragingsamosa, both of whom are ranked in the top 2% of our community.

A few months ago, TMFBreakerJava helped Fools feel secure about the stock:

Forecasting a bull market for security and surveillance in China? Not a hard calculation to make. Given that the Chinese economy is growing even in the depths of a global recession and given that the Chinese state is still overbearing and omnipresent, it's not hard to imagine large and rapidly growing markets for this technology in both the public and private sectors.

In a pitch from last month, Ragingsamosa kindly shares a surveillance update:

Getting beat up again like it's March 2009 all over again. Had a profitable recent quarter, and will benefit from Chinese stimulus directly as firms expand facilities and invest in security. This company is also showing ambition by making some acquisitions designed to diversify revenues and take advantage of ongoing security monitoring, rather than just installation.
