On CAPS, 99% of the 258 members who have rated Primero believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star DarthMaul09, tapped Primero as a golden bargain opportunity:

This company has had a relatively poor performance given the recent recovery in the silver and gold price this year. At $3 or less this appears to be a great value. ... Although the miners have not done well relative to the metals, I believe that the profits that they will report later this year will begin to interest the value investors, especially if these companies grow their dividends. The low interest rate environment should keep a floor under the metals and make competing bonds less attractive.

Of course, despite its five-star rating, Primero 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 another small miner with big potential. The report is 100% free, but it won't be around forever, so click here to access it now.
