Uranium Stocks to Watch (USU, CCJ, DNN, URRE)

Since the re-election of Japan Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, Uranium stocks have been on fire.

The country still hasn’t recovered from the devastating earthquake that measured 8.9 on the Richter scale and caused a Tsunami that triggered a level 7 meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

He plans to revitalize the country’s nuclear infrastructure and that has investors feeling bullish about nuclear stocks. Here are a few to watch.
