On CAPS, 97% of the 896 members who have rated Denison believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, K3VIN0, highlighted Denison as a solid bargain opportunity:

Same opinion on this as I have on most of the uranium companies. This has been beat down too much for no reason. The fear over nuclear power will die down and many countries will be reinterested in it. Today's reactors are nowhere near as dangerous as the 40 year old reactors at [Fukushima] were. Definitely time for a price readjustment here.

Of course, despite its four-star rating, Denison may not be your top choice.
