Hot Basic Materials Stocks: GMO, URRE, URZ

Uranerz Energy Corp. (AMEX:URZ) was up over 18% with very unusual volume after announced that it has completed its “at-the-market” financing and has raised US$20 million in gross proceeds through Haywood Securities Inc. The company now has approximately $36 million in its treasury, and there are 70,781,433 shares issued and outstanding. As a result for today’s trading session, its volume traded daily went to a 2-month high. Looking at the technical daily chart below, it seems the stock broke the strong resistance area at $3.54 and has moved decisively to the upside. That is a powerful sign that high prices are likely to continue. Long positions may be considered on price weakness, with a stop-loss at $3.04. The next resistance it could encounter is at $4.09. Once that level is breached, the next resistance could be the 52-week high at $4.13. In addition, the On Balance Volume is increasing, this clearly shows that smart money is moving into the stock again.
