Shares of uranium miners Energy Fuels (NYSEMKT: UUUU), Denison Mines (NYSEMKT: DNN), and Uranium Energy (NYSEMKT: UEC) stocks resumed falling Thursday, dropping 7.6%, 9.7%, and 10.2%, respectively, through 12:50 p.m. EDT after rebounding in price earlier in the week. According to The Wall Street Journal, investors are reacting (or perhaps overreacting) to news that a nuclear power plant in southeast China is seeing an increase in "noble gases in one of its reactors' primary circuits, which is part of the reactor's cooling system." Now, Electricite de France SA, which co-owns the nuclear plant, says these gases are not "dangerous in small quantities," and crucially, we're not talking about any sort of a radiation leak -- yet.
Shares of uranium miners Energy Fuels (NYSEMKT: UUUU), Cameco (NYSE: CCJ), and NexGen Energy (NYSEMKT: NXE) stocks all dropped in afternoon trading Monday, falling 7.5%, 8.7%, and 9.2%, respectively, through 12:30 p.m. EDT. Since its most recent bottom in late April, the spot price on uranium has run up 12.5% to $30.26 per pound today -- and you'd think that investors in miners Energy Fuels, Cameco, and NexGen would take that as good news, but here's the thing: Today's uranium price is roughly equal to what the atomic power raw material cost 11 months ago, in July 2020. As MiningReview.com points out today, you need to see spot uranium prices around $60 per pound to "incentivize" producers to mine more uranium.
