On CAPS, 98% of the 1,830 members who have rated Cameco believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this year, one of those Fools, bradyamanaka, tapped Cameco as a solid bargain opportunity:

Uranium supply is not keeping up with demand. Fukushima may have shut down nuclear energy in Germany, but China and India need electricity and they're going to build DOZENS of new nuclear plants in the next decade. It's underappreciated how much impact the Russian warhead uranium recycling deal affects the markets -- the supply coming from these recycled warheads is ending this year. Pays a dividend, stable company, well run. Has largest high grade uranium deposit in Saskatchewan.

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 its five-star rating, Cameco may not be your top choice.
