Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Chemdawg, succinctly summed up the Denison bull case for our community:

[N]uclear energy is simply too cheap to stay down forever. [U]ranium is currently almost not economical to take from the ground but long after the weak ones go out of business. [T]he big players left will make a killing. [B]etter to be early than late to this party ... buying out fission energy soon and will have access to a whole lot more uranium. [B]ack up the truck.
