Fracking, Uranium and Solar, Oh My!: Growth and Innovation in 2013 (12/26/13) A more profitable outcome often requires a new way of doing things. The Energy Report profiled some of the most innovative stories in the energy space in 2013. Our experts talked about everything from developments in hydraulic fracturing techniques to new ways of finding and processing natural resources. As we look forward to exciting new opportunities in 2014, let's revisit some stories our experts shared last year.

Uranium Price Headed for $50 in 2014, Taking Stocks Higher: Rob Chang (9/10/13) The stubborn spot price of uranium has frustrated market watchers for the past year. But that's not the whole story. As most long-term contracts have been made at higher prices, astute investors have been slowly moving into the stocks of uranium producers and explorers in anticipation of the delayed commodity price move expected in 2014. In this interview with The Energy Report, Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Metals and Mining Analyst Rob Chang explains what lies ahead and how the turnaround in the uranium market will benefit the companies he thinks investors should focus on for maximum profits.

Rob Chang: Is 2013 a Catalyst Year for the Uranium Market? (1/31/13) After scraping along what appears to be the market bottom, uranium prices are poised for significant moves this year as the in-place demand exceeds visible supply for the foreseeable future. So says Rob Chang, Equity Analyst at Cantor Fitzgerald Canada in this interview with The Energy Report. Investors stand to make some exciting returns if they know which companies to watch, and Chang names some companies on the verge of big breakthroughs.
