On CAPS, 97.2% of the 1,580 members who have rated ArcelorMittal believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include v12golfcart and GenevaProdigy.

Just last month, v12golfcart kept a steely eye on ArcelorMittal's financial position:

Mittal knows steel, and he runs some of the most efficient mills out there. When industrial activity picks up again, [ArcelorMittal] is going to come back with a vengeance. Recent quarters have shown that the leverage situation (one of the major reasons for depressed prices) is no longer an issue as [ArcelorMittal] has been able to successfully refinance large portions of their debt.

In an earlier pitch, GenevaProdigy echoes that contrarian sentiment:

As more evidence shows that the recession is moderating, and also signs that the demand for steel will increase due to explosive growth in BRIC and other developing nations, I believe that this will be a fortune maker. ArcelorMittal is the largest steel company in the world and if any steel maker were to profit from rising demand, this will be it. ... Furthermore, it has a history of consistently increasing sales, earnings and cash flow.
