On CAPS, 99% of the 792 members who have rated Brookfield Infrastructure believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Laice1 and GingersBread.

Just last week, Laice1 tapped Brookfield Infrastructure as a solid income opportunity: "[G]enuine value play. ... [A] dividend of just over 5%. Has fingers in many different pies, what's not to like?"

In fact, Brookfield Infrastructure even sports a cheapish P/E of 5.9. That represents a clear discount to other highly rated infrastructure stocks like Fluor (NYSE: FLR) (33.4), Foster Wheeler (Nasdaq: FWLT) (24.2), and McDermott International (NYSE: MDR) (22.8).

CAPS member GingersBread elaborates on the bull case:
 

Brookfield is a well-diversified infrastructure company with smart management and good long-term growth prospects. ... There operations are well-diversified globally, from railroads in Australia to timber fields in Canada, and from ports in Europe to utilities in Chile. The company uses stable cash-generating businesses like urban utilities (literal monopolies) to fuel high-growth operations like airport and railroad construction that service emerging markets. Significant debt and leveraging will likely prove beneficial to the company long-term, but nonetheless represents a possible risk to the business.
