  • USEC: A Top Mover 0 comments
    Jul 29, 2013 10:04 AM | about stocks: LEU

    After huge weakness following a 1-for-25 reverse stock split, USEC's (USU) prices have risen literally to the sky.

    The charts below lead us to believe that there is genuine buyer interest. Nevertheless, with a float of just 4.72M, around 15M shares have been traded in the last five days. It seems too much!

    The company has a partnership with the Department of Energy (DOE). Since 2002, USEC has been developing an efficient uranium enrichment gas centrifuge technology called the American Centrifuge. USEC is working to deploy this technology in its American Centrifuge Plant (NYSE:ACP).

    One must remember that USEC had been created as a government corporation in order to restructure the government's uranium enrichment operation. The company had an IPO on July 28, 1998.

    It seems that shareholders think USEC's problems can be really overtaken.

    Let's see what happens to the stock prices this week.
