The junior uranium stocks on our list might perform well given the current level of geopolitical uncertainty
SmallCapPower | August 10, 2017: Tensions have been increasing between the U.S. and North Korea over the past few months. North Korea has been consistently threatening the U.S. and the U.S. President has not taken kind to it. President Trump released a statement on Tuesday saying anymore threats from North Korea and “they will be met with fire and fury.” This statement spooked markets as the S&P 500 fell 0.41% on Tuesday. While most stocks slip with extreme tensions such as this, uranium stocks should do well, as countries such as the U.S. look to boost their nuclear stockpiles in reaction to a nuclear-armed North Korea. Today we have identified three junior uranium stocks that could see an increase in investor demand due to current nuclear threats.
