Both Terra capital and Tribeca Investment Partners Pty Ltd are very much interested in Uranium stocks, following the news in late July that major uranium explorer and producer- Cameco, indefinitely paused the production at its McArthur River Mine. Being the largest producer of Uranium, Cameco removed 11 percent of the global supply from the market by this move.

Uranium has been seeing many ups and downs from A long time, however things are looking good now, as the spot price recently reached a two-and-a-half year high of $US27.70 ($38.82) per pound which is a 36.5% gain compared to the last year.

Both Terra capital and Tribeca Investment Partners Pty Ltd are agreeing that the production from the resource market is promising right now, however there are many big resource companies that are trying to pick themselves up after the prolonged period of depressed commodity prices.
