If you are interested in a little bit more risk in your portfolio you might like this post. Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Uranium and nuclear industry. In fact the price of Uranium has been skyrocketing from $9/lb in 2003 to $120/lb in 2007. Better than this, some expert expect Uranium to reach more than $160/oz in 2008. That’s 17% increase in only one year. But why there is so much enthusiasm around such dangerous metal?
It might sound funny at first glance, but the Kyoto Protocol is one of the most important reasons why Uranium demand is so high. In fact, nuclear energy doesn’t produce any GHG. Therefore, it meets several criterions for countries searching for cleaner way to produce energy. Some say that it’s the energy of the 21th Century. Beside the nuclear waste (which can be contained), the nuclear power can classify under green sources of energy.
After what happened in
Now things are different. People understand that the technology used back then might not have been secured enough. But technology evolved and we are now in a better position to contain and manage nuclear waste.
Having written that, I strongly suggest you get some uranium based fund in your portfolio as it might be the next big thing for the following years. You sure just missed a good chance in 2003, but it seems that demand for uranium won’t stop shortly. Then entire world is seeking for resources and uranium is one of them. It is always a risk as nothing is granted, but I surely made the jump. Unfortunately, I’m not your advisor, so you will have to make your own research and decide whether or not you will go for uranium.
