ridiculously high price points. Honestly I have no idea if this is good, bad, or neutral for either UUUU or URZ common shareholders.
OK, so you made me do a little more DD. It turns out they are already both on the Russell Microcap index. UUUU was added last year and URZ was added years before. Both have enough market cap to stay on that index, but they must be trying to get on the Russell 3000 AND 2000 which they could also easily do if they close by 6/19 like they are now trying to do. They didn't change up meeting dates and all that just to stay on the Micro because they will have no problem as it is staying on that index, imo.
Why does a "preliminary" list = definitely not going to happen? Updates are June 19 and 26 with final being the close of 26. You might be right but I don't see anything that proves "definitely" and why would both companies bother changing the dates and specify "could close as early as June 19"? It all seems very calculated and coincidental, imo.
Anybody here think they will make it to the Russell this year?
Uranerz is also expected to schedule its shareholder meeting to consider the Transaction for June 18, 2015, assuming the US Securities and Exchange Commission declares the Registration Statement on Form F-4 related to the Transaction effective next week.
Assuming the Registration Statement is declared effective next week, requisite shareholder approvals are obtained at the respective shareholder meetings, and all other conditions to closing are satisfied or waived, this would allow for a closing of the Transaction to occur as early as June 19, 2015.
Don't sweat the small stuff. As long as there isn't another Fuki type disaster in the next 4 years URZ/UUUU is going to the moon as soon as the merger is completed, then to Mars if there's not another Fuki.
URA etf is the biggest trader of these stocks and URA is primarily traded by pre-programmed systems which is decided upon by the "big boys" sometimes days in advanced. Just sit back and enjoy the long-term gains, again if no Fukiness happens :)
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Energy-starved China is actively pushing for more nuclear power generation. The consensus at the nuclear industry trade conference in Beijing yesterday was that the State Council will approve 8 new nuclear power projects, with construction starting this year.
There is a nuclear power pure-play listed in Hong Kong: CGN Power (1816.HK), which went public in a $3.2 billion deal last December. This stock recently traded at 4.50 Hong Kong dollars a share, a 62% jump from the IPO price of HK$2.78.
China will likely approve starting construction on 6-8 new nuclear projects each year going out to 2020.
Uranium stocks surged Thursday and the industry-related exchange traded fund bumped up against its long-term trend line, after Japanese officials removed the last impediment to turning back on reactors that were shut down in response to the 2011 Fukushima disaster.
The Global X Uranium ETF (NYSEArca: URA), which tracks uranium miners, jumped 4.6% Thursday after rising 6.1% Wednesday, and the ETF is now testing its 200-day simple moving average.
Uranium stocks are powering back after the Kogoshima District Court rejected a legal bid to block the reopening of the Sendai nuclear power station due to safety concerns on Wednesday, reports Kentaro Hamada for Reuters.
With nuclear energy industry looking brighter, uranium demand is expected to rise. According to the World Nuclear Association, the number of new nuclear plants due to go online this year and in the next three years is expected to total around 40, and more are planned in the years ahead, mostly in Asia, writes Lawrence Williams for Mineweb.
Currently, the price of uranium miners remain low as they have not risen to reflect the potential increase in demand ahead, according to Equities.
“There will be additional demand as nuclear reactors come back on-line in Japan, and as China completes new ones. So, I think the price will continue to trend upward,” Joe Reagor of ROTH Capital said on Equities.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
IMO, They need both new financing to launch any significant production and they need spot price to be a good $55 minimum to be worthwhile. Also, what's the "true" status of their NM Navajo access rights these days? It's been awhile since I've traded URRE so curious about the Navajo situation. If they could get that "truly" resolved that would help keep them get a decent buyout offer.
Even with financing and good spot price, aren't they years away from being able to produce anything "significant" They don't have much infrastructure currently do they at the NM Navajo properties?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
