Shorting Uranium, Lending Pounds, and Time Issues | John Ciampaglia Inteview

Video by Resource Talks via YouTube

In this interview I sat down with, John Ciampaglia, CEO of Sprott Asset Management, and we talked about shorting uranium, lending pounds, and time issues.

More specifically, we talked about the fluctuations in uranium prices, the performance of other funds, and the potential for a new fund or adding more UF6 and EUP to their portfolio.

We also touched upon the dynamics of the uranium market, the challenges in the industry, and strategies to overcome these challenges, including raising awareness about uranium and attracting more institutional investors.

Additionally, we discussed the role of sentiment in the market, and the importance of long-term fundamentals, diversification, and careful management of investment portfolios due to potential risks.

Lastly, John also explained to me the rising prices of conversion, particularly for uranium, and its impact on utilities, and the increasing pace of contracting cycles.
