Today I posted my two-hundred-and-thirty-ninth YouTube video: Quick Pick Cameco

Today’s Quick Pick: Cameco (NYSE: CCJ). I’m not a fan of nuclear power. Relying on an energy source that produces waste that will remain radioactive for thousands of years when we have no real solution for long-term disposal, is, to me, not the best idea. However, we’ve waited so long to deal with climate change and we still haven’t upgraded the grid so that wind and solar can replace current baseload power sources, so nuclear power will remain in the mix longer than expected. And might even see an increase in its share of the electricity market. Cameco is one of the largest producers of uranium in the world. The company has a lot of capacity that it can bring back into production since it shut down a number of mines when demand for uranium was down. The stock is up about 35% in the last year, 30% year to date, and 16% in the last month. For the trailing 12 months, the company was actually profitable ($116 million), following a loss in 2021 and 2020. You may want to wait for another dip in the general stock market for this one, or dollar cost average into it, but for global warming solutions, this is a good play since we’ve dragged our feet until we’re in an emergency that will require non-optimum, shall we say, solutions. I’ll be adding the stock to my Jubak Picks Portfolio tomorrow, February 22 with a target price of $35.
