Uranium Companies

There are very few pure uranium companies. Most companies, especially the small exploration type, are active in more than the uranium industry. This blog makes no attempt to guage the percentage of a companies activity that are related to the finding, mining or processing of uraniun. They all do, however, have some uranium activities (to the best of our review).

Merv's Uranium Indices

I have developed two Uranium Indices. They each have the same component stocks but are calculated using different methodologies. My weekly Index is based upon the average weekly performance of the component stocks. My daily Index is based upon the daily average of the component stocks open, high, low and close prices along with the daily average volume of all component stocks.

Merv’s Daily Uranium Index
Market Data

Open: 169.49
High: 174.77
Low: 166.38
Close: 170.28
Volume: 5236

Note that the volume is an average volume of round lot sales for the 5 0 component stocks. For total volume, multiply by 5000.

Well, the Daily Index was up but one would not notice it. It is still inside that FAN but only barely. With uranium down another $0.50 I guess we can’t expect much help from that angle.

The Merv’s Daily Uranium Index closed higher by 0.84 points or 0.50%. There were 18 winners, 22 losers and 10 going nowhere. One of the top five was a reasonable winner while the rest were losers. Cameco lost 1.3%, First Uranium lost 1.4%, Paladin was the gainer with a win of 4.6%, Uranium one lost 2.1% and USEC lost 0.9%. The best winner of the day was Wescan Goldfields with a gain of 31.6% just beading out East Asia which had a 30.3% gain. The worst loser was Purepoint Uranium (wasn’t that a winner yesterday?) with a loss of 15.6%.

Nothing has changed in the short or intermediate term indicators so I’ll cut to the chase and say that the ratings for both remain BEARISH.

With the Stochastic Oscillator plunging and the Index below its very short term moving average line one would go with the down side as the direction of least resistance. However, I continue to go with the lateral as the Index doesn’t seem to be in any mood to go lower or higher.

Well one might get frustrated by the short and intermediate term ratings, but it wouldn't take too much from this point for a crossover to occur, changing the ratings again to full bullish.

I am liking the stability in the 65day, and am expecting a powerful move up here to fulfill that 300 target.

All in all, can't get to discouraged with the delay, and visualizing a continuation on the upside in the 65 day is not hard to see.

I do think it is coming soon.

Licking my chops!

like i said before. that trendline in physical U308 is very difficult to break. i believe we must close above that line on the physical for the next big move to occur....
