Technical Analyst Clive Maund shares an update on North Shore Uranium to explain why he believes it is a Strong Buy.

The technical case for buying North Shore Uranium Ltd. (NSU:TSX) here is clear, simple, and STRONG.

Before we look at its stock charts, we will take some time to overview the fundamentals of the company using its latest investor deck.

North Shore is a stock that we went for too soon, early in February, as it has since drifted lower, but as we will shortly see, the case for buying it here is considerably stronger than it was back then.

The first slide from the investor deck sets out the company's vision in the context of the outlook for uranium.

The company has two properties that it is exploring for uranium on the eastern margins of the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, the Falcon property and the West Bear property, whose locations are shown on the following slide.

It should be noted that although Falcon is technically outside the boundary of the basin, this does not reduce its potential for discovery as the same geological formations that are present in the Falcon area underlie some of the major uranium mines within the basin. 

An overview of the Falcon property is provided on this slide.

An overview of the company's other property, West Bear, is provided on this slide.

Ongoing and upcoming work on the Falcon property is set out on this next slide, and of particular note for investors is that drill sample results (from the March drilling program) are expected very soon.

This could move the stock and might help explain the strong Accumulation we are seeing on the stock chart.

Our last slide sets out the capital structure of the company, and an important and very positive point to note is that of the 36.8 million shares in issue, approximately 45% are held by insiders and founding investors.

Now we will proceed to see why the technical case for buying the stock is so strong and for this purpose, we will use two charts, one going back nine months — there is no need to go back further because the stock only started trading last November — and the other going back 3-months which will enable us to examine recent action in more detail.

Starting with the 9-month chart, we see that after coming to market on November 2, the stock promptly "hit the skids," which is quite a common occurrence with new issues caused by early speculators "cashing out," and it plunged from CA$0.30 back to CA$0.12 where it found support and stabilized.

As it turned out, this support level at CA$0.12 has provided a floor ever since with a sideways trading range forming above it, bounded on the upside by CA$0.18 although, since early February, there has been a downward bias with the price being shepherded lower by the downtrend line shown so that the trading range appears, at first sight, to have morphed into a bearish Descending Triangle BUT — and this a big but — by far the majority of the volume, while this Triangle has formed, has been upside volume, which is why the Accumulation line has been trending so strongly higher and this is a powerful positive divergence which is a strong indication that an upside breakout into a major uptrend and new bull market is pending or "in the works" that will have little trouble breaking the price above the resistance shown in the CA$0.12 area.

Note also the bullish alignment of the moving averages with the rising 200-day coming into play, which is increasing the chances of an upside breakout soon, especially as the price and moving averages are now bunching together in a potent manner.

The 3-month chart enables us to see recent action in much more detail and, in particular, the extraordinary positive divergence of the Accumulation line, which is trending strongly higher, and we can also see how close the price is now to breaking above the downtrend line.

We, therefore, stay long, and North Shore Uranium is rated a Strong Buy for all timeframes, with the case for buying it here considerably improved than when we first looked at it.
