Reader:

I notice an article in

Forbes

as well as other conjecture that nuclear energy may be making a comeback based on the price of crude and other factors. Jon Markman's

article on

USEC

(USU)

noted players in the uranium production area. Are there other investments that might have potential at this point?

TheStreet Recommends

Very few stocks that trade in the U.S. would help an investor take advantage of the potential for success in the nuclear energy area. I'm really not a big fan of USEC.

One of the small number of major uranium miners that trade here is

Cameco

(CCJ) - Get Report

. There are some others that trade on the Canadian exchanges.

Finally, the utility

Exelon

(EXC) - Get Report

always runs up on nuclear expectations because it operates a number of nuclear energy facilities and wants to open more.
