Over on CAPS, 380 of the 385 members who have rated Brookfield Infrastructure -- some 99% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Stars SlowThought and latimerburned, both of whom are ranked in the top 15% of our community.

Last month, SlowThought highlighted the stock's utilitarian nature: "Utility sector is a good choice for value and for defense. This company has low debt, good margins, and a good dividend."

In a more recent pitch from last week, latimerburned expands on the company's other exposures:

Probably one of the most boring businesses around but that is what is so great about it. They own timberlands and electric transmission as well as some social infrastructure. Look for them to make a big splash this year by diversifying into transportation infrastructure by buying into either an overlevered toll road or inking a ports deal. If slow and steady wins the race then [Brookfield Infrastructure] is the way to go.
