On CAPS, 93% of the 172 members who have rated ITC believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include JPC1938 and silverbear2.

Just last month, JPC1938 tapped the stock as a smart way to turn energy policy into profits:

A sizeable investment in public infrastructure will definitely be made within the next five to ten years. Our power transmission lines were built for the 1950's and 1960's, and are inadequate for our future needs, especially considering new alternative sources of electric power and the increasing "wired" population.

In an earlier pitch, silverbear2 expands on ITC's particularly powerful plans:

They are planning to build what they call "The Green Power Express", the power transmission system to connect the wind farm corridor of the sparsely populated Midwest to the main power grid serving the industrial Midwest. They would seem to be poised to be a major player in the forefront of the proven alternative energy production, and a key recipient of Federal funding in the infrastructure buildout and overhaul.
