Cameco ( CCJ) pushed the Metals & Mining industry lower today making it today's featured Metals & Mining laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day up 1.1%. By the end of trading, Cameco fell $0.54 (-2.2%) to $24.34 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 3,761,627 shares of Cameco exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2,478,600 shares. The stock ranged in price between $24.14-$24.95 after having opened the day at $24.93 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $24.88. Other companies within the Metals & Mining industry that declined today were: USEC ( USU), down 20.9%, North American Palladium ( PAL), down 7.5%, Prospect Global Resources ( PGRX), down 5.4% and Timberline Resources Corporation ( TLR), down 5.3%.

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 $9.7 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. Shares are up 18.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. 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 weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins.

On the positive front, International Tower Hill Mines ( THM), up 26.0%, General Steel Holdings ( GSI), up 13.2%, Rare Element Resources ( REE), up 10.1% and Mines Management ( MGN), up 9.5% , were all gainers within the metals & mining industry with Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold ( FCX) being today's featured metals & mining industry leader.

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).
