Uranium maker Cameco falls after Scana cancels nuclear plans

Shares of uranium maker Cameco (CCJ) are falling after Scana's (SCG) principal subsidiary, South Carolina Electric & Gas Company, SCE&G, announced earlier that it's not moving ahead with its long delayed construction of a pair of new nuclear units at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Jenkinsville, SC. SCE&G pointed out the additional costs and uncertainty of tax credits as reasons for abandoning the projects. URANIUM PRODUCER: Cameco describes itself as "one of one of the world's largest uranium producers providing about 17% of the world's production from mines in Canada, the US and Kazakhstan." Uranium, one of the heaviest metals, is essential in powering nuclear reactors that produce electricity. URANIUM DEMAND IN QUESTION: In mid-July, Credit Suisse analyst Robert Reynolds downgraded Cameco to Underperform from Neutral as his cataloguing of nuclear power plants drove his forecast for uranium demand below current industry expectations. The analyst reduced his longer-term price for uranium to $40/lb based on the 90th percentile of the cost curve, from a prior forecast for $60/lb based on an incentive price. Reynolds also lowered his price target on Cameco shares to C$10 from C$13.50. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Cameco are down 2.4% to $10.31 in afternoon trading. OTHERS COMPANIES LEVERED TO NUCLEAR REACTOR SPACE: Uranium Resources (URRE) and BWX Technologies (BWXT).

Defense stocks likely to be weak in short-term, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Michael Ciarmoli says that "ongoing discord" in Washington, including animus over the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch, will cause defense stocks to undergo "short-term selling pressure and multiple compression." The analyst says that the conflict between the parties and clashes over the budget could derail the Trump Administration's defense spending goals. Additionally, he says that a lack of funds could force Congress to cut the funds appropriated to some defense programs. Nevertheless, the analyst is upbeat on the sector over the longer tyerm ,citing the need to update aging equipment and elevated threat levels. He thinks that any short-term weakness should be viewed by longer term investors as a buying opportunity. The analyst keeps Buy ratings on Aerojet Rocketdyne (AJRD), BWX Technologies (BWXT), Kratos Defense (KTOS), Mercury Systems (MRCY), and Orbital ATK (OA),

UBS analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith upgraded SCANA to Buy and raised its price target to $77 from $75 saying shares have underperform on Toshiba concerns. The analyst said Toshiba concerns have largely reached an apex for now and believes Q1 updates indicate the latest delay will actually be quite modest. He believes the most recent actions by Toshiba to sell off other businesses rather than addressing the Westinghouse business head-on following the $6B writedown in December gives him confidence on its implicit commitment.
