On CAPS, 98% of the 1,834 members who have rated Cameco believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Chemdawg, succinctly summed up the Cameco bull case for our community:

[R]eactors coming back online slowly but the uranium is so cheap it is not economical to mine. [T]hat won't stay that way long. Cigar Lake is due to start actually producing this year. [S]ometimes being the best has its advantages ... you stay alive when the weaker ones go 10 toes up. [O]utperform.

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