On CAPS, 95% of the 813 members who have rated Eldorado believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A few months ago, one of those Fools, wesbri, offered a balanced take on the opportunity: "Low cost, reserves and producing operations on 3 continents, dividend linked to gold prices, increasing production volume through 2015 ... what's not to like? (Caveat: highly exposed to gold price risk and geopolitical risk in China, Turkey, and somewhat Greece)."

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

The report is 100% free, but it won't be around forever, so click here to access it now.
