On CAPS, 95% of the 151 members who have rated Casa Saba believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include cdubbies and All-Star mrindependent, who is ranked in the top 2% of our community.

A few months ago, cdubbies noted that Casa Saba "has a strong financial position with little debt." Our CAPS member concludes: "Generic pharma should be a strong industry in tough economic times and this company has little competition in an emerging market ... This stock is probably undervalued because it lacks coverage from Wall St."

In a pitch from last week, mrindependent expands on the stock as a healthy way to play emerging Mexico:

Grupo Casa Saba ... is a multi-channel, multi-product national wholesale distributor in Mexico. The Company distributes pharmaceutical products, health, beauty aids and consumer goods, general merchandise, publications and other products. This ... company consistently increases revenues and maintains high returns on equity (over 16%). Currently selling for just over book value, this company appears to be undervalued.
