    Action to take: Uranium prices are likely to continue higher, which should benefit Cameco. Shares are mostly moving based on uranium prices, as the company isn’t currently profitable right now. Investors bullish on the space can buy shares, but with a current yield under 0.3 percent, they won’t be too well paid to wait.

  • Traders may like the calls, which have a decent amount of time to play out, and have a strike price that shares could jump to in the coming months given the market’s uranium fever. Look to take quick profits if shares move in-the-money, or if the options more than double. Commodity-driven trades can be prone to sharp pullbacks.
