On CAPS, 99% of the 548 members who have rated Brookfield Infrastructure believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star alars79, who is ranked in the top 15% of our community, and jmo72.

Just two days ago, alars79 tapped Brookfield Infrastructure as a steady way to earn some income: "Great dividend, great cash position. Operations are recession resistant (utilities) and poised to take advantage of economic growth (infrastructure)."

In a pitch from last month, jmo72 touched on the long-term tailwinds working in the stock's favor:

Though short-term [Brookfield Infrastructure] might not do much, it is a solid core of assets that should perform nicely over the long-haul. Things like electricity and timber are always going to be in demand, especially in those areas which are still being developed. Not to mention that they are a part of the greater Brookfield family which has a lot going for it as well. Add to it a nice 6 % yield and you have the makings of an outperformer.
