Flipping Nuclear Power Back On (ETFs: NUCL, NLR)

nuclearNuclear-power generation is experiencing a revival. While there hasn't been a new plant started since the Three Mile Island fiasco in 1979 (www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/aer/txt/ptb0901.html), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (www.nrc.gov) is currently processing applications for 26 new facilities, which amounts to only half the capacity needed for nuclear to continue meeting 20% of America's energy needs. Using Energy Information Administration's (www.eia.doe.gov) projections that U.S. electricity demand will grow 50% over the next 30 years, NRC Commissioner Kristine Svinicki figures that America will need the equivalent of 50 new 1,000-megawatt nuclear-power plants just to maintain the status quo (www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/commission/speeches/2009/s-09-008.html). More importantly for investors, while America has mixed feelings about this non-carbon-emitting energy source, other industrialized countries are stepping up their decades-old nuclear commitment; 75% of France's electricity is nuclear-generated. More than 60 new nuclear plants should come online overseas by 2015...... ......Despite being politically unpopular, nuclear utilities like Exelon could actually profit if a carbon-tax system is introduced, says Miller, and are lobbying Congress to get a cap-and-trade system that doesn't undermine their regulated monopolies. Besides the utilities mentioned, he likes American Electric Power (AEP) and Public Service Enterprise Group (PEG), but is cool on Constellation Energy. Three nuclear-oriented exchange traded funds let investors spread risk across the uranium and nuclear-power industries. Morningstar's Justice and ELF Digest (www.etfdigest.com) Publisher David Fry favor Van Eck Associate's (www.vaneck.com) Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR). Justice notes that NLR has exploited "first-mover advantage" to capture about 15 times the assets of second mover Barclays' (http://us.ishares.com) iShares S&P Global Nuclear Energy (NUCL), thus offering investors a tighter bid/ask spread.

Uranium Rises for a Second Week on Speculation About ETF Buying (NLR)

uraniumApril 27 (Bloomberg) -- Uranium rose 6 percent, advancing for a second straight week, on speculation about possible buying of the nuclear fuel by an exchange-traded fund. Uranium-oxide concentrate for immediate delivery climbed $2.50 to $44 a pound, Denver-based pricing service TradeTech LLC said in a report on April 24. Prices gained in the prior week for the first time in almost six months. “Short-term bullish momentum may come from one of the uranium ETFs possibly raising money to buy uranium in the spot market over the next three to six months,” Max Layton, an analyst at Macquarie Group Ltd. in London, said by telephone. Nufcor Uranium Ltd., located in St. Martin, Guernsey, and Vancouver-based Uranium Participation Corp. are the world’s only publicly traded investment holding companies that invest in the nuclear fuel, according to a March 4 report by brokerage firm Raymond James & Associates Inc. “We are still strong believers that the spot price will double from its lows over the next two to three years as the market moves into deficit on strong Chinese demand growth,” Macquarie said in a report. The bank predicted a “return of investors” as prices increase. Full Story: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601082&sid=aDvFGfT4ejbA&refer=canada
