On CAPS, 97% of the 2,714 members who have rated Tata believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

Earlier this month, one of those Fools, NHWeston102, offered a balanced take on Tata:

Seems safe to sneak back into this Indian automotive powerhouse. Between the Jaguar and the little Nano, they cover the full range of social class consumer. [Tata] is also looking to move out into Indonesia, Thailand, and Burma. However, India is not their game preserve -- other competitors will challenge them in their homeland.  

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Tata may not be your top choice.
