Cameco Corporation Up 3.14% Today

CCJ Chart 12 Nov 2010.JPG



Cameco Corporation (CCJ) has put in another good day with a gain of 3.14%. However, there is a gap opening up between the 200dma and the stock price which needs to be watched. The RSI is standing at 83.14 which suggests that a breather is on the cards, along with the MACD and the STO which are also in the overbought zone.



On the 9th October, 2010 we wrote the following about Cameco's progress:

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.

As we can see on the chart at the top of the page this crossover has now taken place with the resultant positive effect.

Recent results for Cameco have also come through with some good news for investors such as production is up 17% year to date and the average unit cost of production has decreased by 13% The 2010 uranium production forecast has increased to 22 million pounds, Cigar Lake is on track and McArthur River and Key Lake have signed a four-year collective agreement.

Cameco CEO Jerry Grandey commented as follows on the results as follows:

"This year's operational success has continued into the third quarter, Production volumes are 17% higher than in 2009, while production costs are lower. Our $US realized prices have also risen, illustrating the strength of our contract portfolio.

As we advised earlier this year, revenues were lower in the third quarter due to the timing of uranium deliveries. We expect about one third of our uranium sales will be delivered in the fourth quarter.

We are on track to double our annual uranium production from existing assets by 2018. Our growth strategy is in place to ensure we remain among the world's leading uranium suppliers to those who choose to use safe, clean and reliable nuclear power."


Uranium production is expected to be 22 million pounds this year, compared to our previous estimate of 21.5 million pounds, with increased production at Rabbit Lake and Inkai.
