On CAPS, 97% of the 890 members who have rated Denison believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, LegalHustler, touched on the tailwinds working in Denison's favor:

In it for the long term. Spot prices for uranium are at 2 year lows so this is a good entry point. With the megatons to megawatts program ending soon , India/China planning dozens of reactors, and Japan bringing back their reactors online this seems to be a no brainer for me.

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 a strong four-star rating, Denison may not be your top choice.
