Over on CAPS, fully 385 of the 398 All-Star members who have rated Satyam -- some 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include TMFSTX and porcelain808, both of whom are ranked in the top 20% of our community.

Just last week, TMFSTX tapped Satyam as a good bet to get back to honest business:

Take a dash of forgiveness, add a pinch of greed, stir in a low price and you’ve got a recipe for a run-up. Yeah, this is a gamble but I’ll bet on the fact that there’s a real business lurking below the schemes and that [Satyam] is poised to make some real cash for a change.

In an earlier pitch, porcelain808 also chose to focus on the company's core:

Solid business that will work through a financial scandal. The company has catered to best-of-class talent in India, helping to attract some of the best IT folks and prevent a modicum of brain drain. A super-friendly work environment and solid business model will help keep [Satyam] afloat through the worst and then spring them ahead when the dust settles.
