Casey Research On Why Uranium Will Go Up

Pretty much echoes what I and many other analysts have been saying for a while. They have a big readership of sheeple so i would expect this help drive the shrinking pool of uranium stocks higher once the price of uranium gets moving north, which should be soon.

Casey Research:

but Katusa sees clear signals that the bulls are ready to run, not least of which is the recent attack on the Somair uranium mine in Niger.

Why? First, the 20-year Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) Program agreement between the U.S. and Russia, aka "Megatons to Megawatts," expires this year.

Second, the end of that program will allow Russia to sell its coveted uranium, which currently powers one of every 10 homes in the U.S., to the highest bidder. With 200 nuclear power plants under construction or on the drawing boards, China is likely to be first in line, with India and even oil-rich Saudi Arabia on its heels.

Third, the increase in nuclear plants being built around the world will stimulate huge demand while supply inevitably dwindles. Because it can take a decade to bring a uranium mine on-line, new mining production can't grow fast enough to meet the demand.

Fourth, like it or not, nuclear energy is clean-while the average coal-fired power plant in the U.S. emits nearly 4 million metric tons of CO2 each year, nuclear power plants emit no carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, mercury or other toxic gases.

Finally, last Thursday, an Al-Qaeda splinter group attacked the Somair uranium mine in Niger-owned by French uranium giant Areva. This will further disrupt global uranium supplies and emphasizes what the energy experts have been saying: Uranium is prime for price increases.

An interview with Rick Rule follows. Momentum, sponsorship, and news is starting to build behind uranium stocks it appears.
