On CAPS, 97% of the 2,712 members who have rated Tata believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, fellow Fool John Divine (TMFDivine), succinctly summed up the Tata outperform case for our community: "Fuel efficiency in non-luxury brands, increasing sales, widely diversified (both in vehicle types and geographic markets), and a good dividend make this stock a definite long-term buy."
