  • The Other Reason to Buy Uranium Companies

    By Joshua Bondy - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, DNN, UEC

    The bullish case for uranium usually centers on electricity generation, but there is a darker reason to buy the industry. China's rise and the growth of its military is rewriting the world's balance of power, and inspiring other nations to double down on nuclear energy for its potential military benefits.

    The historical backdrop

    During the Cold War, Asia was split along communist and democratic lines. The U.S more »

  • Profit From Nuclear Energy With These Three Nuclear Experts

    By Rupert Hargreaves - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, FLR, URS

    Since the Fukushima accident, the outlook for nuclear power has been cloudy. Japan began an extended shutdown of 48 reactors and Germany committed to move away from nuclear, to solar and wind power by the beginning of the next decade. This has given the nuclear industry a grim outlook.

    However, according to data from the World Nuclear Fuel Cycle conference held in Singapore back in April, the nuclear industry outlook more »

  • The Uranium Market Will Soar

    By Robinson Roacho - June 24, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, EXC, SO

    The demand for electricity rises as global economies continue to improve. However, there has been a migration toward cleaner production methods. Overall, governments are trying to avoid coal power plants due to environmental concerns. Natural gas is the cleanest fuel used for electricity production. Due to an increasing demand for natural gas, prices for the commodity have rebounded after trading at multi-year lows in May 2012. Since electricity production by more »

  • Cameco Is the Shining Knight of Uranium Stocks

    By Jaiyant Cavale - June 21, 2013 | Tickers: BHP, CCJ, RIO

    In what seems like a decisive win for Cameco (NYSE: CCJ), the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) awarded the company a uranium mining license that will be valid until June 30, 2021. This long-term validity of the license will allow Cameco to construct and operate its massive Cigar Lake uranium project. The ultra-high-grade mine is located in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. In this article, I shall focus on Cameco's uranium more »

  • What Is "Resource Nationalism" and Why Should You Care?

    By Peter Epstein - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, VALE, DNN, EFRFF, RIO

    According to Wikipedia, Resource Nationalism (RN) is "the tendency of people and governments to assert control over natural resources located on their territory." This definition fails to convey the breadth of the threat the world faces. Most readers recognize overt acts of RN. 

    At its worst, an act of RN comes without warning, and without compensation for the seized assets. More commonly, a government fails to honor a contract, demands more »

  • With Southern Company, Nuclear Still Has a Chance

    By Joshua Bondy - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, SO, UEC

    At times nuclear energy is hard sell. Even though the uranium doesn't emit large amounts of greenhouse gases or require complicated transportation pipelines, the threat of a radiation leak has many people ready to abandon nuclear energy altogether. Southern Company (NYSE: SO) is trying to prove that nuclear energy still has a future in America with a new nuclear power plant. Amid the negative sentiment, there are a number more »

  • 3 Affordable and Promising Canadian Mining Stocks

    By Jaiyant Cavale - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: AEM, AGI, CCJ

    Canada has a wealth of natural resources, including a lot of materials and metals. Canadian mining companies have struck gold (literally), and have continued to mine for other metals that are in demand internationally. Canadian mining companies have the unique advantage of a safe and secure business atmosphere and governmental support to increase metal production.

    As for investors, Canadian mining stocks promise great returns and tend to be more affordable more »

  • Falling Yen And Energy Imports Could Bring Back Nukes

    By Reuben Brewer - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, GE, SCG, SO

    The 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan has left virtually all of the country's nuclear facilities closed. Increased energy import costs and a recently falling yen, however, could lead to a nuclear power comeback.

    World-Wide Repercussions

    What started as an earthquake off the coast of Japan quickly devolved into a nuclear disaster as nature overwhelmed the safeguards of nuclear power plants near the epicenter. The problems exposed, again, the risks more »

  • What’s Next for Nuclear?

    By Wes Patoka - June 9, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, EIX, EXC

    Nuclear energy is the source of many debates. When everything is running smoothly, it is a stable source of energy that can provide us with carbon-neutral energy for years. However, like we saw with the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan, when things go wrong they can be very difficult to deal with and the ramifications can last for years. With rising demand and a supply shortage slated for 2013, the more »

  • First Solar Up Over 300%, Will Uranium Stocks Follow?

    By Peter Epstein - May 30, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, DNN, FSLR, RIO

    Last year, sentiment on First Solar, (NASDAQ: FSLR) and solar stocks in general was awful. In looking at analyst reports from the first half of 2012, there were several with price targets of $12-$18 per share.

    Today the stock is at $52, up well over 300% from its 52-week low.

  • New Report States Uranium Demand to Grow at 4% CAGR

    By Peter Epstein - May 29, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, DNN, EFRFF, UEC

    U.S. uranium producer Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) has been saying all year that uranium demand will increase at a 3% Compound Annual Growth Rate, or "CAGR," over the next 10 years. Recently, a new report  by GlobalData suggested that uranium demand will increase by a 4% CAGR over the next eight years. Either way, with the supply side looking increasingly challenged, uranium prices are likely to go higher.

  • 3 Post-Earnings Sells for Wednesday

    By Brian Nichols - May 3, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, IPGP, MA

    A stock’s initial trend after earnings does not mean that it is either a buy or a sell. Stocks trade illogically after earnings all the time, and in this piece I am looking at three stocks to “sell” regardless of the post-earnings trend on Wednesday.

  • Japan's Nuclear Exports Are Bullish for Miners and Japan

    By Joshua Bondy - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, EWJ, TM

    Japan's Fukushima disaster caused a public backlash and the call for the removal of nuclear power. Japan's previous plans to increase nuclear power to meet half of the country's needs have been scrapped.  The lost growth is a negative for the nuclear industry, but Japan is trying to export its nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. The developing Saudi-Japanese partnership will help to ensure a steady supply of more »

  • Nuclear's Health Risks Are Over-Inflated

    By Joshua Bondy - April 19, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, NLR, URRE

    The societal effects of an energy source are important for policy makers. Before approving a new nuclear power plant regulators look at all parts of the facility and its potential impact on the surrounding area. The Fukushima disaster tarnished nuclear's image even though researchers estimate that just 130 people will die from directly related cancers. Nuclear energy does have some health costs, but the history shows that it is more »

  • Where is Coal's Future without Ontario?

    By Joshua Bondy - April 10, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, BTU, RIO

    Ontario, Canada will finally cut its ties with coal. A year ahead of schedule, they will shut down the province's last remaining coal plant by the end of 2013. It would be dangerous to make a linear projection and say this trend will continue worldwide. The reality is that Ontario's special geography and history makes it uniquely suited to say adios to coal.

  • Uranium Sector Update, Interest Building?

    By Peter Epstein - April 9, 2013 | Tickers: ESOFD, ARVCF.PK, BHP, CCJ, EFRFF, FSSIF, RIO, SXRZF.PK

    I think we're seeing an increase in institutional interest in the Uranium sector amid M&A activity and excitement over recent exploration success in Canada. Acquisitions including Denison Mines' (NYSEMKT: DNN) pending takeover of Fission Energy and Russia's ARMZ acquiring Uranium One, are prime examples. On the exploration front, Fission Energy and Alpha Minerals have received an enormous amount of attention for discoveries at Patterson Lake South in more »
