Over on CAPS, fully 110 of the 120 All-Star members who have rated Fluor -- some 92% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These Foolish bulls include TadpolesUS and falcon2382, both of whom are ranked in the top 2% of our community.

Two days ago, TadpolesUS had this to say of the stock: "Now at $40, it's a bargain. Lots of ongoing projects, good management, and a decent dividend."

A pitch from falcon2382 just one month earlier shares that bullish sentiment, writing:

Fluor will surely get a great deal of future US and China infrastructure projects. In the US especially, infrastructure will not only be looked to as an economic stimulus package, but it is actually severely needed. We are talking about 1.8 or so trillion dollars worth of work that is needed across the country -- and that is not even taking into consideration new and alternative energy projects that its Power segment will have access to.
