Uranium stocks were hit hard in 2011 after a Japanese earthquake and tsunami triggered the worst atomic disaster in 25 years. Following the incident Japan shutdown all 50 of their nuclear reactors, which were responsible for approximately 30 percent of the nation's electricity. Last week the Japanese government approved to restart the No. 3 and No.4 Ohi units in western Japan.
The "restart of the Japan reactors is likely to be the triggering event to start an upward movement in uranium prices and uranium stocks," said Steve Laflin, president and CEO of International Isotopes.
