Over on CAPS, 870 of the 893 members who have rated Jones Lang LaSalle -- or 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include KarolKarol and whitepapers.

Last month, KarolKarol tapped the stock as a classic book-value bargain: "Too many assets on their balance sheet valued at below market levels. The current valuation is assuming the whole world will stop going to work tomorrow. I don't think so."

In a pitch from one week earlier, whitepapers shares that contrarian line of thinking:

Times are tough and they're trying to digest a big bite in The Staubach Company purchase. Anything real estate related is being trounced lately. Add in the fact that their dividend was cut-which I personally think was a smart idea-you can see why the stock price is down so far. This is a premier company with positive cash flow and a reasonable amount of debt. [Jones Lang LaSalle] is a steal at today's price.
