On CAPS, 97% of the 2,123 members who have rated ArcelorMittal believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, All-Star Lulupoopsalot, tapped the stock as a solid long-term bargain opportunity:

I might be getting in too soon on this one. But the value is hard to ignore. Price/Sales of 0.21, a Price/Book of 0.35, and a LT Debt/Equity of 0.44 are just a few things that make me believe a bottom should be close. This is a long term hold based on many things such as a global recovery, steal price stability or increases, and improving margins. All speculative at this point so it will take many years for this to play out.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, ArcelorMittal may not be your top choice.

With the U.S. relying on the rest of the world for such a large percentage of our goods, many investors are ready for the end of the "Made in China" era. Well, it may be here.
