Is Uranium The Next Copper? – December 17, 2016

Is Uranium The Next Copper?

The uranium market has been under pressure this year as the spot price of the commodity has dropped by almost half since the beginning of 2016. Last week the spot price of uranium closed at $18/lb. However, miners often lead the commodity higher. With Cameco (TSX:CCO) leading the surge, the rest of the pack appears to be following. The price action I’ve been noticing in uranium stocks are beginning to appear very similar to that of the copper stocks before their recent powerful surge to new 52 week highs.

If you are a contrarian investor, the demand for uranium should pick up as more nuclear reactors are brought online. A supply deficit could prove to be a tailwind for pricing. Just like today, in 2004 the spot price of uranium was sub $20/lb. Although, by mid 2007 investors who participated saw the spot price soar to $137/lb. The President-elect Donald Trump victory probably doesn’t hurt this thesis either.
