On CAPS, 97% of the 2,098 members who have rated ArcelorMittal believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Truslunch, tapped ArcelorMittal as a particularly solid bargain opportunity:

Largest steel producer in the world sitting at 52-week lows. This is a good value opportunity. Stock has taken a beating from market due to recession, fears on European economy, and lack of demand. [ArcelorMittal] has been closely associated with Europe ... but this is a global company. ... [T]here is a lot of opportunity in Asia when demand picks back up. So I'm a buyer from here. Huge upside long-term potential that pays me [a +4% dividend yield] to wait for a global recovery and is poised to benefit the most from future Asian development? Yes, please.
