Energy Fuels (NYSEAMERICAN:UUUU) (TSE:EFR) has been given a $5.00 price target by investment analysts at HC Wainwright in a note issued to investors on Monday, August 6th. The brokerage currently has a “buy” rating on the basic materials company’s stock. HC Wainwright’s price objective would suggest a potential upside of 60.77% from the stock’s previous close.
The analysts wrote, “We also highlight that 1H18 cash flow and $22.1M in cash from the issuance of shares in the first half of the year have contributed to a strong working capital position of $55.2M (vs. $33.3M) at the end of 2Q18, including $43.2M in cash and cash equivalents. In our view, this should provide the firm with near-term flexibility to reduce its debt balance, increase its vanadium production capabilities (which we expect in response to spot prices nearing $20 per pound of V 2 O 5 ), and take advantage of any opportunities that may arise in the uranium market. Trade actions under Section 232 could allow for near-term production growth. The U.S. 2018 decision to initiate an investigation into the impact of uranium imports may lead to the President enacting some type of trade or non-trade related remedy to address any perceived national security concerns.”
