On CAPS, 98% of the 1,342 members who have rated Thompson Creek believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, WilliamCrook2003, touched on the tailwinds working in Thompson Creek's favor:

Another undervalued stock which will have appreciated more than the S&P will have done five years from now. My thinking behind this is attributable to the China having changed its policies to one of growth and this will mean more steel resources will be sought by China. Also factoring in their gold and precious metals mines being in operation by the end of 2013 and this companies share price is a bargain.

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 its five-star rating, Thompson Creek may not be your top choice.
