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.

After The Close, 19 Nov 2009

Merv’s Daily Uranium Index
Market Data

Open: 177.23
High: 179.76
Low: 173.40
Close: 177.96
Volume: 4961

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

The action remains inside that 6 month “box” with the upper resistance at 197 and the lower support at 151. Lately, the action has been trapped inside a shorter term upward sloping channel. The next hint as to which way the wind is blowing is when the action gets out of the channel. Despite today’s minor bump in the trend, the trend remains in a basic upward direction. The waiting game continues.

The Merv’s Daily Uranium Index closed lower by 0.49 points or 0.27%. There were 15 winners, 26 losers and 9 just fooling around. The five largest were mixed. Cameco gained 1.0%, First Uranium gained 12.5%, Paladin lost 3.5%, Uranium One lost 2.9% and Uranium Participation lost 0.4%. The best performer was Freewest with a gain of 22.2% while the worst performer was Ucore with a loss of 10.5%. Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF lost 2.0%.

Nothing has changed with the indicators today so I’ll cut it short and just confirm yesterday’s ratings as BULLISH for both the short and long term.

As for the immediate direction of least resistance, I still think that would be to the up side but I’ll be a little more cautious and go with the lateral direction.
