Peter Grandich Sees Uranium Climbing to US$200

...But is the end of this bull market for the nuclear fuel near? Not if you ask Peter Grandich, author of The Grandich Letter, who attributes rising prices to tight uranium supplies.

With the spot price for uranium rising further in the wake of two auctions last week, and another major deal with sxr Uranium One Inc.’s $1.6-billion friendly bid for Energy Metals Corp., surging investor interest in the sector continues unabated.

But is the end of this bull market for the nuclear fuel near? Not if you ask Peter Grandich, author of The Grandich Letter, who attributes rising prices to tight uranium supplies. Although he thinks we’re past the halfway point for uranium equities, he thinks uranium prices will rise to US$200 per pound. Market monitors Ux Consulting and TradeTech recently raised their spot prices to US$135 per pound and US$138 respectively, while long-term prices are at US$95 for both groups.

Mr. Grandich expected that a hedge fund or Uranium Participation Corp., which buys physical uranium, might have taken some profits by now and actually sold some uranium. But they haven’t.

“By them not doing that yet, it convinces me that the US$200 target is more reasonable than we could even have imagined just six months ago,” he said, adding that some of these players got into the uranium play early at US$30 or US$40 or less. “It’s very hard to pass up on 300% and 400% gains, and they are doing that at the moment.”
