On CAPS, 96% of the 1,414 members who have rated Kinross believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Chemdawg, tapped the stock as a solid way to play the pullback in gold prices:

[G]old is struggling right now ... best time to buy is when everyone else is looking someplace else. [L]ong term drivers of inflation already in place. [N]o rally continues unabated ... this is just a momentary pause in a long term bullish trend.

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