Cameco Corp (CCJ): Today's Featured Metals & Mining Winner

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Cameco ( CCJ) pushed the Metals & Mining industry higher today making it today's featured metals & mining winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 1.0%. By the end of trading, Cameco rose $1.74 (8.2%) to $22.93 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 6,949,973 shares of Cameco exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2,123,900 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $21.35-$23.08 after having opened the day at $21.38 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $21.19. Other companies within the Metals & Mining industry that increased today were: Ur-Energy ( URG), up 16.8%, Uranium Resources ( URRE), up 13.7%, Avalon Rare Metals ( AVL), up 10.3% and Denison Mines Corporation ( DNN), up 9.4%.

Cameco Corporation operates as a uranium producer, supplier of conversion services, and fuel manufacturer. The company's Uranium segment is involved in the exploration for, mining, milling, purchase, and sale of uranium concentrate. Cameco has a market cap of $8.4 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. Shares are up 2.0% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 8 analysts that rate Cameco a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 4 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Cameco as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, compelling growth in net income and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins.

On the negative front, James River Coal Company ( JRCC), down 16.9%, Allied Nevada Gold ( ANV), down 9.3%, Solitario Exploration & Royalty ( XPL), down 8.5% and Midway Gold ( MDW), down 7.0% , were all laggards within the metals & mining industry with Goldcorp ( GG) being today's metals & mining industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the metals & mining industry could consider SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF ( XME) while those bearish on the metals & mining industry could consider PowerShares DB Base Metals Sht ETN ( BOS).
