URANIUM STOCKS: The Sideways Shuffle?


Uranium stocks are going sideways despite uranium's fabulous progress, why?

This is certainly a puzzle for us and until we have resolved it we are reluctant to make further investments into uranium stocks. The stocks could be indicating that the metal is about to change direction and head south, as the Hui did when gold was trekking up to $720 per ounce. This is a possibility that we tend to discard as the fundamentals for uranium are solid.

We keep asking the question; when will the market realise that uranium stocks have the potential to outperform those of gold and silver? Does it need more air play? Are the green issues still creeping around in ghostly form? Does the investment market believe that oil will last forever?

This is similar to a hippopotamus who stays in his water hole even though it is drying up. When the water finally runs out he makes a move, but he is now too weak to reach the next water hole and dies.

Nuclear energy will play a big part in the energy needs of all nations in the future,of this we are extremely confident.

Recently we saw uranium rise from $48 to $52 per pound, a rise of almost 10%. If gold were to move up by 10%, say $60, then where would the Hui go? Damn right it would.

Only a few of the analysts that we read are bullish on uranium and some of the more respected ones are piling in to uranium stocks. This gives us some comfort that we are not alone (although sometimes we prefer to be alone) and just maybe it is a matter of being patient. We are happy with our selected stocks at the moment and will continue to hold them. Our watch is increasing by the day with a number of stocks now almost ready for investment. The current doldrums may last a few months or so, we can only observe for the moment.

If you don't have any uranium stocks in your portfolio then do buy a few as insurance against a sudden rise. We will be watching for any opportunity to increase our exposure on the current stocks that we hold and we also intend to add some new faces when the time is right.

Don't go to too crazy but if you have a favourite uranium stock, buy it and forget about it for a while.

ENERGY METALS CORP: Buying opportunity approaching?


ENERGY METALS CORP: Buying opportunity approaching?

Energy Metals Corporation is a Canadian company listed on the TSX, with a large portfolio of uranium properties in the States of Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Arizona. Energy Metals Corporation (EMC) also owns advanced property holdings in Wyoming,Texas and New Mexico.

Geopolitically this appeals to us as these locations are as 'safe' a place to invest as any. The United States is a massive user of uranium so EMC is well position geographically as they are right on the door step of a major client.

There are currently 65 million shares at $5.60 which gives us a quoted market value of $364 million. However when we include the options and warrants that are outstanding, the fully diluted shares totals some 79 million. To us this is a significant consideration. If we divide the market value by 79 million we arrive at a share price of $4.38. We believe that the demand for uranium will continue to grow and Energy Metals Corporation is well positioned to benefit from the rise in the price of uranium but we feel the stock price is a little ahead of itself at the moment, so once again we will wait and observe this stocks activity.

From the chart we can see that this stock has bounced off its 200 DMA, the RSI is middling along as is the MACD and the stochastics are pointing downwards.

URANIUM: Stocks down, uranium up!

In this precious metals sell off its strange to see the uranium stocks suffer when the price of uranium continues to rise. Just like Lemmings investors run for the door even when it doesn't make sense.

Here at uranium-stocks we are not selling any of our stocks. The price of uranium continues to move upwards so the asset value of the stocks that we have selected continues to increase. Sooner or later the stock prices will be forced to follow uranium and that rise looks like it may well catch a number of investors asleep.

The best action to take is to switch off from constantly monitoring every click in the movement of your stock and spend the time doing some research and due diligence. You could well unearth a gem in the process. (And when you do, stick your comment on here so all of our readership can benefit. Our investment portfolio is free to everyone, we have no connections to any other company and are therefore able to call it as we see it)

Peter Grandich often refers to uranium stocks as a no brainer when it comes to investment. As he and others get more and more air time this sector of the market will start to motor so make sure that you have a few uranium stocks in your portfolio.

Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. Has a Uranium play

Eagle Plains Resources Limited has a Uranium play under its wing known as Eagle Lake Uranium in which it has a 100% interest. The property encompasses an area of 15,550 acres.

This claim lies 30 kilometres south of the edge of the Athabasca Formation. Eagle Plains plans to explore for uranium deposits in the north to northwest-trending faults, which are interpreted to have formed structural traps where uranium mineralisation may have been preserved.

As uranium forms only a small part of this stocks list of projects we tend to think of it as a multi-metal explorer and have placed it with our silver mining assets rightly or wrongly.

If you want to read our articles no this company please follow the links below:

Eagle Plains update.

We are buyers and will continue to accumulate this stock as when we are able to do so.

Rampart Ventures Ltd

This is a very small uranium exploration company however they have made a number of changes to their management team lately so it may be time for an investment?

With a Market Capitalisation of $7.5 million we are now looking at the opposite end of the market from Cameco in terms of investment. Rampart Ventures Ltd. is a Vancouver-based company focused on uranium exploration. Rampart has assembled a team of geologists and directors with extensive experience in uranium exploration, which we find attractive. They have also recently appointed Dr. Peter Kausch, a former board member of Uranerz Exploration and Mining Ltd., to the board as Director of Corporate Development.

Rampart has also managed to raise the capital it needs to develop its business plan, which is also a good sign.

They have four projects under development in northern Ontario and Saskatchewan:

SIBLEY BASIN PROJECT, North-western Ontario - Located in a completely new area in Canada showing the potential for high-grade uranium deposits. Early results show the area has the potential to be as rich in uranium as the Athabasca Basin, which currently produces some 30% of the world's high grade uranium. Other projects include the Richards Lake project in the Athabasca basin, the most prolific uranium-producing region of Canada and the world. Add these two projects to the Bearhead Lake Deposit in Ontario, which has approximately 1 million lbs of U3O8, identified then the potential for further growth looks promising.

It will be interesting to track the progress of this uranium explorer, its got good management, cash and properties in a geopolitically stable part of the world.

We will watch it for now before making an investment, but with uranium creeping along silently to $52 per pound some of these smaller stocks could be the next stock market rockets.

URANIUM: Tick, tock, Watch the clock!

On the 28 August 2006 we pointed out that the price of uranium had risen to $48.0 per pound, the clock has moved again its now $52.0 per pound.

As the momentum gathers pace the uranium stocks will be recognised for they are worth so we will continue to acquire uranium stocks.

We will post our research on a few more interesting investments shortly.

LARAMIDE RESOURCES LTD: Up 3.8% since our July purchase.

With the futures contracts for uranium recently changing hands for $51.0 it is only a matter of time before this increase in the stocks underlying asset, uranium, impacts on the share price.

Having placed our money into this stock all we can do now is watch and wait. Laramide has made a good start and certainly beats keeping money in the bank, in our humble opinion. Their recently announced results were good too so we are pleased with this investment.

MEGA URANIUM LTD: up 9.5% and will do better.

Mega has started really well for us but we are expecting bigger things from this classy uranium stock.

Having invested in this stock at $8.0 Canadian on the TSX the stock has since gone through a 2 for 1 split so we have effectively paid $4.0 for this uranium play.

Nuclear energy is coming to us all and much faster than the market thinks it is.

Those stocks with their foot on the best uranium properties will be the big winners.

Mega has recently reported that its Joint Venture partner Red Hill Energy Inc, has commenced drilling in the Baganurat Property, in Mongolia. We will be tracking their progress in this area of the world with great interest.

It should be noted that Red Hill has 11 Uranium properties covering 216,170 hectares, which exposes our investment to the possibility of new discoveries. Yes, yes, yes.

CAMECO CORPORATION: ready to move higher?

Cameco Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) has gained 4.32% since we made an investment in July. Reasonable but not great progress considering uranium’s progress recently.

We will continue to hold for the time being in the hope that the realization that uranium prices are going higher will sink in with the investment crowd and the value of Cameco assets should also be recognized.

As nuclear energy becomes more acceptable so will the value of uranium and eventually Cameco. For now we will hold and watch.

The future is still clear, it’s nuclear.

Uranium: 02 September 2007

We are not too keen on Economists who work for banks, however, this lady always talks sense.

If you missed it, catch it on the web its well worth it and its only 7 minutes in duration.
This programme can be found on 8:15 AM ET AM Business with Brigitte Anderson. Commodities & Katrina Patricia Mohr, vice president of economics, Scotiabank

Patricia Mohr, vice president of economics, Scotiabank has consistently predicted a bright future for Uranium and now she is about to set a new target price for uranium. Watch out for her latest predictions as she has a very good track record on uranium and of course this commodity is the underlying driving force behind our selection of uranium stocks.
