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, 17 Feb 2010

Merv’s Daily Uranium Index
Market Data

Open: 172.95
High: 175.40
Low: 169.47
Close: 172.67
Volume: 5446

Note that the volume is an average volume of round lot sales for the 50 component stocks. For total volume, multiply by 5000.

Although small we still have another up day in the Daily Index. The Merv’s Daily Uranium Index gained o.83 points or 0.48%. There were 24 winners, 18 losers and 8 stocks standing still. Cameco gained 0.8%, First Uranium lost 2.2%, Paladin gained 5.6%, Uranium One lost 0.3% and Uranium Participation gained 1.1%. The best winner of the day was Forum Uranium with a gain of 15.8% while the loser of the day was Uranium Resources lost 9.1%. Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF gained 0.4%.

The gain today did nothing for the indicators so I’ll cut things short and just go directly to the ratings, BEARISH on the intermediate term and BULLISH on the short term. For details, go to the previous say’s commentary.

The immediate direction of least resistance still seems to be the up side but it does look like the very short term may be topping out or stabilizing for the next few days, so I’ll go with the lateral.
