On CAPS, 98% of the 1,336 members who have rated Thompson Creek believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, WillyT41, succinctly summed up the Thompson Creek bull case for our community:

They have all the funding in place to complete their Mt. Milligan mine on schedule in Q3 2013. Once complete, the earnings potential from that operation should propel the stock higher ... they should make almost their current market cap every ~year or so of operation. A rebound in moly prices, which is certainly not outside the realm of possibilities, can only provide additional upside.

If you want to retire rich, 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.
