ASX Uranium Stocks: 5 Biggest Companies in 2024

Uranium has thrived in recent years, gaining traction in 2020 and 2021 while most of the world was at a standstill due to COVID-19. Prices for the energy fuel have continued to climb since then, sparking optimism for the future.

In 2022, the uranium price began spiking early in the year, reaching US$64.50 per pound in mid-April. This positive trend continued through 2023, when prices rose 87 percent to reach US$90.27 by the end of the year.

Uranium reached its highest level in nearly two decades when values surpassed the US$100 level in February. Since then, prices have contracted, but remain historically high. As of mid-June, values were holding in the US$85.50 range.

Top Stories This Week: Uranium’s East/West Divide Heats Up, Central Banks Eye Gold

The gold price rose as high as US$2,366 per ounce on Thursday (June 20), but had fallen back to the US$2,325 level by Friday (June 21) morning, looking set to end the week relatively flat.

Its price increase came as US jobless claims fell by 5,000 to reach 238,000 in the week ended June 15; meanwhile, single-family housing starts fell by 5.2 percent in May. The data has boosted interest rate cut expectations for the fall.

Central bank buying has provided major support for the gold price in recent months and years, and a new survey from the World Gold Council (WGC) indicates that 29 percent of the 70 central banks that responded intend to increase their gold reserves in the next 12 months — that's the highest level seen since the survey began in 2018.
