    This has been a long long time coming, probably a year or two more than anyone would have thought, but I think it is now safe to say that we are at the dawn of this sector finally waking up. The Ux prices are showing some definite signs of life, and there is just an awesome amount of upside potential here.

    What I REALLY liked was the way CCJ traded today. It showed strength throughout the day, and finally showed the ability to trade on it's own...and NOT just be an energy stock that essentially moved with oil.

    The way the trading was going through today, it looks as if some significant positions are now started to be accumulated....not retail...more trading as if funds were starting to come in. This bodes very well for the stock, and the price rise should continue nicely over the next several months. As the broader public starts to take notice, there is then the potential for a second significant rise. (The broader public is always late to the party and misses the more significant rise that "smarter" money found way earlier.)

    For the record, I'm a trader by design, and rarely take positions for any length of time. In this case though, I make the exception. The risk/reward profile at this stage is just far far too inviting to ignore, and if the trading I saw going through today is an indication of what's to come, then I have no problem expecting significant gains across the next 2 to 6 months.

    Best to all, whatever your timeframe is.

    While the real shortfall may come "officially" next year, the market is always a forward looking instrument, typically by about 6 months. If we're seeing the first indications of the price starting to tick upwards, I doubt we'll have to wait until next year for the real fun to begin.

    For those looking for the short term bounce, I would say the point is now there. The overall market is in the toilet today, oil price just dropped again overnight, and the sentiment is about as bad as it gets. All in though, ECA is only off a few pennies today and/or up slightly, depending on the moment. Short term bottom may in fact be in.

    Soros's Cameco holding increased 44%

    Wow! A very VERY strong endorsement. Nice to see!

    Personally, as attractive as the price is compared to a year ago, I wouldn't dream of touching this stock. The fact is, the company is in big trouble and in big debt. Their timing was completely horrific for building new rigs all over the place, and the company is now extremely vulnerable with not a realistic end in sight to the pain given oil is most likely in a multi year slump. Personally, I'd be surprised if the are able to survive. So for those looking for some entry point, I do wish you well. Just far too risky here for me to wake up one morning with nothing.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I watched the stock trade most of the day yesterday, and I have to say I'm thrilled with the way the stock responded. The overall market was down over 200 points, and after some initial re-testing, the stock climbed steadily almost all afternoon. Personally, I love days like this. It's a great opportunity to get a glimpse of the internal strength of the stock in the face of a very strong headwind. The stock responded extremely well, and I'm thrilled. This kind of test shows the stock moving significantly higher from current levels.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Yes the plant has restarted. From BBC news an hour ago, they started it at 1:30 GMT.

    Uranium deficit, a must read

    by dr_dr_detroit Aug 10, 2015 4:11 PM
    starsearcher40 starsearcher40 Aug 10, 2015 6:39 PM Flag

    I think this scenario is actually quite possible. It's been a very long time since I've seen a sector both so beaten down, and at the same time ,so overlooked. The recovery in uranium has certainly taken far longer than anyone would have imagined. People tried playing for a bounce off of the first hit after Fukashima and they got their heads handed to them...and then some. The recovery has actually taken so long now that some of the drop can be credited to either disgust and/or fatigue. I don't blame people.

    Ironically though, here we are at the precipice of the nuclear price thaw, with demand set to move on re-starts in Japan and a lot of nuclear capacity (need) being built as we speak in India and China. Then add in the number of years it will take to ramp up any new mine given the extended drought. To my eyes, it is literally now the perfect storm of events that will lead to that explosive upside from current levels. The stock is vastly oversold. With the re-start of the first Japan reactor, I think the sector will wake up strongly, if only on the news/sentiment. Fresh eyes will again come to the stock, and see it for the bargain it currently is. From my stance, the stock should recover nicely to the mid 20's with that being practically a no-brainer in the short term. From there, we'll see as the price of uranium ramps up.

    Doesn't happen often, but this stock right now is the absolute best play I know in every time frame available; the short term, medium term and the long term. With ALL of these buyers about to come back in, I'm anticipating some quite strong upside moves akin to today and more.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • starsearcher40 by starsearcher40 Aug 6, 2015 9:10 PM Flag

    The stock (on the longer term chart )has now triple bottomed, and is at a beautiful point to be buying. Add in then the overly low price of uranium (oversupply is drying up nicely), a number of smaller producers/projects shuttered, Japan coming back online, and India/China building reactors....simply put there are too many things that point to a very strong upside from here.

    Outside of trading this stock several times just on technical charts, I've never taken a long term position...until now. Over the past 3 days, I'm now fully in, and very heavily so.

    Today's price rise and volume

    One other component that I forgot to mention is that virus based cancer treatmentsare really starting to become all the buzz. Perhaps it has been in the scientific community for some time, but I would say it is now on the precipice of catching the imagination of the mainstream populace. If so, that would be an additional very strong boost to the share price, in combination out on it's own.

    The price jump and volume today are definitely eye-catching. The stock does have a history of some notable share activity prior to a news release, but not of this magnitude and sustained strength (intraday comment). Oncy does a reasonable job of keeping their own news reasonably well contained (reasonable, far from perfect.) If the jump here is news based, them I suspect it is not only bigger news but also involving other "participants" beyond just the company itself...hence the wider circulation of possible news to come.

    Another possibility is that those powers who have been suppressing the stock are now decidedly going to move the stock back up now that shares have been accumulated. This release of the relentless downward pressure becomes an event unto itself, with this "news"also circulating and others jumping on the upside bandwagon.

    Either of these scenarios will do wonders for the share price.Done well in combination with each other and the share price moves explosively higher.(making the Nasdaq pricing issue be seen fur what it was...a negative mechanism employed to help suppress the price.

    We'll see what comes :)

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Now THAT is the kind of news release that will wake things up! I know it's been a very frustrating ride with many news releases that seemed to "suggest" that ONCY was moving in the right direction and had a remarkable product. It's a much longer, much more complicated, much more involved path from lab to sales than I think most of us here would have ever guessed. But this release shows that what we have always hoped for may in fact be true. Does this mark the corner now turned for ONCY? I would suggest it will. The numbers in that release are just too strong to suggest otherwise.

    Interesting drop today

    starsearcher40 starsearcher40 Mar 27, 2015 6:49 PM Flag

    Yes, that was an ugly drop today, and more than could ever be explained by any general market move. Something started working its way to the street today, and it obviously isn't good given they haste to the exits. I'm sure the rest of the market will find out in the next few days.

  • starsearcher40 by starsearcher40 Feb 2, 2015 10:20 PM Flag

    I agree that the bottom was put in (again), and that there should be some otherwise natural recovery. But the nature of the trading today was different than that. It had a strength and intent that was difficult to pass of as one of the usual/common/expected reasons. To the contrary, the stock traded more as if there was a rumour in the market. Personally, I haven't heard what that would be, but then as retail investors the only smart position is to consider yourself last to know. The only ability we do have is to see the rumour show up in the trade activity, and to see it for what it appears to be, a marked break from the "usual" day to day trading of the stock.
    We'll see what comes. Maybe something there. To my eyes, this stock now moves to the top of the watch list. The activity today is more than just a little "curious".

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
