On CAPS, 97% of the 889 members who have rated Denison believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those bulls, doinitmyway, succinctly summed up the Denison bull case for our community:

Latest news of a 47% increase in Indicated Mineral resources and 100% increase in Inferred Mineral resources of high grade uranium deposits. This comes at a time when uranium is set to move higher. They own 60% of the Wheeler River property, Cameco owns 30% . Even if Dennison is not swallowed up by [Cameco], there is strong movement higher in share prices, ready to breakout according to "the Street". I'm buying.
