Uranium Oversupply Is Over

Featuring Mike Alkin

Mike Alkin of the Stock Catalyst Report details the market opportunity in uranium, with an anticipated end to the supply glut and an emerging energy security subtext in the US. Mike believes the current market narrative is misplaced and it’s now time to pay attention to the dislocation between supply and demand.

    Anyone watching this now (a year later, more carnage) should check out the SmithWeekly report on the topic. It's only $15. Worth far more than that. It runs through the set-up and conservative and aggressive ways to trade it.

    From what he's saying about the United States' precarious position on Uranium Supply/Demand, it seems any US producers should do better than others.
    Reminds me of the problems with foreign oil dependence in the early 1970's. Domestic oil producers did fantastically over the next few years.

    India and China are building new reactors like mad. Spot is WAY under production costs. Problem is that the market for contracts is not transparent. There is also some oversupply. This will move so fast once contracts are renegotiated. Who knows when, but this can't continue forever. My bets UEC and SYH.

    For those with a little more risk appetite- have a look at Deep Yellow Ltd on the ASX (DYL). John Borshoff, ex Paladin (1c to $10 in last Uranium bull mkt) CEO is heading it up...Sprott have invested. He knows how to work the financing...

    I agree. Uranium investirs need to go and read the free Uranium Redbook to throughly understand Supply/Demand dynamics. Japanese nuclear restarts are the key to siaking up the excess inventories and getting prices to move up.

    Don't recall the source (think Exploration Insights?) where they mentioned that long term contracts are running out and getting renewed for the next decade at these low prices, which could dampen the upside of producers.

    Would really have liked to hear his favorite investments to play the theme. More conservative, more aggressive, etc. Some hedge fund mgrs did accurately predict the subprime credit crisis, but lost a lot of money because they were too early and/or bet on the wrong vehicle.

    One of the better ones the last two weeks. I am finding too many lower quality videos. Only one or two per week are actually of interest. What is the fascination with Australia? Lower value add IMHO. Ex sell side broker in Canada FWIW.

    Good thesis but IMO risk reward isn't that great considering the world moving to renewables, industry sensitivity to a single event (think Fukushima)..

    Good presentation summing up the uranium market, I think a few aspects to consider that are missed in this presentation are: 1) amount of reactors scheduled to go offline in coming years, due to age/regulatory issues, and 2) deflation seen in other energy sources. Bear market may continue longer than indicated here.

    Be interesting to see the supply impacts of an Olympic Dam expansion where uranium is just a byproduct credit...iirc numbers floated in the past was ~10,000 tpa increase in uranium production with an expansion.

    IMO, near term price could go lower not because of supply/demand fundamental, but due to strong dollar and deflationary event on the horizon (what if oil dips to lower price ie 10- 20$ that could still pressure Uranium price for awhile), if price still maintain at such level despite of the crisis, buy buy buy, if it dips buy even more. With regards to position sizing and asset allocation, it is good to listen to rick rule's methodology on resource investing.

    Uranium Participation Corp holds physical uranium and is a direct play on the commodity rather than being a miner with associated operational risk, etc

    I tried googling The Stock Catalyst Report but I couldn't find it. I was only able to find Michael Alkin's Linkedin page which only mentions his job as a portfolio manager. Has any one else been able to find it?

    Mike presents some great ideas, but I sure want to follow up on these with my own research. He is smart enough to not present a great investment idea and a time frame in the same interview. Size accordingly.

    URA is the ETF for some Canadian mines and is the way to play it, IMO. I've owned it for more than a year because 2 different RV guests mentioned it in two separate older interviews and said it was one of the best risk/rewards that they knew of. I've watched every RV interview and have learned to pay close attention---to my financial benefit. Just saying.

    So I didn't get a clearly defined idea if it's wise to invest in the miners or just the uranium commodity outright. I'm guess miners as well? Anyone is welcome to answer.

    Ironic. If environmentalists wanted to end the use of fossil fuels within a decade, nuclear power is the most viable option right now. It must be a part of the clean energy future. Just don't put decades-old reactors on a tectonic fault line on the equator!!

    The investor psychology well displayed even on Real Vision. As a Uranium bull, I was expecting this video to be widely viewed and commented on as soon it was released. 7 thumbs up and I'm first to comment well into the afternoon of the release. That's all the market sentiment I need to know. BUY BUY BUY
