Despite all the turmoil in the stock markets Cameco Corporation (CCJ) has been making steady progress culminating in a 4.15% rise yesterday, as we can see on the above chart. Also worthy of note is the 50dma which looks set to cross over the 200dma, in an upward motion. This cross over when it occurs is usually a positive indicator for the stocks progress. However, the technical indicators are at the top end of their ranges, in particular the RSI is in the overbought zone, so we might be in for a breather shortly. The volume was heavy yesterday which was also nice to see.

Cameco is a world leader in low-cost uranium production. Our operations provide 16% of world mine production and we have approximately 480 million pounds of proven and probable uranium reserves and extensive mineral resources.

Cameco has controlling ownership of the world's largest high-grade uranium reserves and low-cost operations in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. Cameco produces nuclear electricity through our 31.6% share of the four Bruce B reactors at the Bruce Power nuclear power generating site, North America's largest nuclear generating station, located in Ontario, Canada.

The flag asset is of course, Cigar Lake, which is the world's largest undeveloped high-grade uranium deposit. The mine is currently in the development phase with the latest target completion date being mid-2013 for the first production. Mine construction began in January 2005, but setbacks occurred in October, 2006 and August, 2008 through separate water inflows into the mine. The source of these inflows were identified and then sealed prior to dewatering. Remediation work continues underground through the remainder of 2010 to restore mine infrastructure after successful dewatering of the mine was achieved in February, 2010.

Cameco Corporation trades on the NYSE under CCJ and on Toronto under the symbol CCO with a market cap of $11.74B. It has a P/E ratio of 21.32 and earnings of $1.40per share.

Meanwhile, over in our options trading den they were stopped out of one trade last night for a profit of 33%, having closed a trade the night before with a profit of 82% which follows the recent success of closing a trade which generated a profit of 50% in 30 days on GLD Call Options, so they now need update their progress chart, yet again, which will probably be done this weekend as things are a little hectic at the moment.
