On CAPS, 95% of the 2,166 members who have rated Barrick believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Lower P/E ratio than most other gold miners. 23% profit margin. Nice earnings growth (and expecting $5 EPS in '13). Healthy dividend to boot! Mr. Market's been rejecting this ... but its numbers look like pure gold to me. Based in Canada with worldwide operations.
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, Barrick may not be your top choice.
