One thing I've heard on CNBC today is that foreign (non-USA) buyers of stocks are increasingly betting long on the American Stock Market. This, coupled with realization that ES is now positioned to become a worldwide growth stock as China etc. build more nuclear plants, makes it a screaming buy.
agreed, the path won't be straight up but there's been some good contract news in china back in march so I don't think we're staying under 8 bucks much longer. there's just not that many companies out there that are still this cheap.
