On CAPS, 96% of the 3,836 members who have rated Yamana believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, 1oldfatguy, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

One of the best run mining companies in terms of cost of [gold equivalent ounces] produced. Gold continues to remain 3x higher than cost and Yamana [is] adding output and output capacity. Dividend will surely rise as CEO has indicated it should. Will make [it] more attractive to new buyers and drive price of stock up as demand remains solid in uncertain economy for next year or so.

Of course, despite its four-star rating, Yamana may not be your top choice. If that's the case, we've compiled a special free report for investors called "The Tiny Gold Stock Digging Up Massive Profits," which uncovers a much smaller miner with big potential. The report is 100% free, but it won't be around forever, so click here to access it now.
