Shares of Freeport-McMoRan Inc (NYSE: FCX) have lost more than 40 percent since the start of 2016 and more than 80 percent over the past year.

The stock's under-performance likely led the Vetr crowd to recognize the underlying value and a more favorable risk to reward profile given its deflated price.

The Vetr crowd upgraded Freeport-McMoRan's stock rating to 4.5-stars out of a possible 5 stars. In fact, shares of Freeport-McMoRan have risen to $3.94 since the prior rating of 3.5-stars was issued just 4 days again.

In addition to an upgrade to bull territory, 88 percent of the crowd's ratings are bullish and the crowd sourced price target of $4.47 implies a potential upside of more than 15 percent.

"I can't see how that pre-market earnings report on 1/26 is going to do anything but lower this stock price," Charles Simonds, a member of the Vetr crowd opined before adding, "All FCX really has to do is make it look like they can avoid bankruptcy and I bet there will be a lot of profit potential in this stock - if they can actually avoid bankruptcy, spin-off their O&G business, and get their debt under long-term control then there might be a fortune to be made here."

However, the crowd member further suggested that prior to gaining momentum, Freeport-McMoRan's stock will "hit a new 52-week low on Tuesday."
