According to a Bloomberg survey, Japan may have no nuclear reactors operating by May 2012 due to a round of government tests causing delays in restarting idled units. Shares of uranium miner Cameco (CCJ) remain well below their pre-earthquake levels, as do those of Japanese power giant Tokyo Electric Power (TKECY.PK).

  • Ridiculous conclusion. Japan isn't Germany. Germany has the benefit of relying upon the French energy infrastructure for whatever they can't make up with other sources. Japan doesn't have such an option, and certainly not in 10 months time. It will take years to transition to natural gas derived energy but I expect nuclear energy will remain a component of Japan's energy infrastructure for decades to come.
