Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Uranium has been back in the news lately, not only due to its relationship with geopolitical maneuvering concerning nuclear weapons, but also as a necessary commodity in the global quest for clean, renewable energy.

The United States is the world’s largest producer of nuclear power, accounting for more than 30% of worldwide nuclear generation of electricity. While there has been little growth in new reactors being built in the last quarter century, the increasing demand for clean energy worldwide is sparking a demand for uranium to be enriched as nuclear fuel.

(OTC: AZURF), are seeing the commodity investment market take a renewed interest in them, with uranium spot prices trending upward in the first quarter of 2017.
