On CAPS, 45% of the 415 members who have rated Uranium Energy believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bears, All-Star BlacknGold, tapped Uranium Energy as a relatively unattractive opportunity:

The company seems to have had a good year, but I there are still some big hurdles. The technology would certainly be cool if it works on a large scale without screwing up the environment. Even then management is pretty sketchy as was described in the Citron Research report a few years back. Uranium will bounce in 2013 (my prediction) as more distance grows between the industry and Fukushima. I just don't think [Uranium Energy] is the best bet for a long-term bet on the industry.
