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, 20 Oct 2010

Merv’s Daily Uranium Index
Market Data

Open: 183.59
High: 191.32
Low: 181.96
Close: 189.15
Volume: 10765

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

Was yesterday the day of a knee-jerk reaction or was it today. We more than made up for yesterday’s loss and then some. WE seem to have decisively breached the upper resistance trend line of the channel. Now, is this going to be a blow-off with a serious reaction to follow or is it to be a strong continuation of a bull market? Only time will tell.

The Merv’s Daily Uranium Index closed higher by 6.34 points or 3.47%. The AVERAGE price of a component stock gained almost double that, at plus 6.12% so the low priced stocks continue to lead the parade. There were 38 winners (the largest number in quite some time), 10 losers and only 2 sleepers. Cameco gained 0.9%, Extract gained 1.6%, Fronteer gained 5.0%, Paladin gained 4.2% and Uranium One gained 1.3%. The best gainer of the day was Uranerz Energy with a gain of 32.3% while the loser of the day was Xemplar Energy with a loss of 8.6%. Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETC gained 2.3%.

I’ll leave you to look over the chart and short term indicators and try to decipher what to expect tomorrow. I, in my total knowledge of things technical, know exactly what’s going to happen tomorrow and will let you know --- tomorrow.

It is fairly typical to have a pull back after a big day, not technical analysis, but just pure speculation. Not saying that it will be a down day though...

U308 has been rising slowly with a spot price of ~48.50.

Hedge funds may start speculating with some of these stocks which may push them up just as they did in late 2006/early 2007.
