This article is a repeat of a solution to a teaser pitch that Dr. Kent Moors has been marketing very aggressively for almost a year.
Why? Because he and his publishers at Money Map are pushing it very heavily again, as they’ve done every few months, and we’re getting questions… and there have been some developments in the market since the ad started circulating. Our original article was entitled, “The Electricity Crisis that Dr. Kent Moors says could bring 100,000% returns” … so if you already read that one back in May of 2014, you can skip along to the bottom to see the additional info I added six months ago in November (and, if you wish, throw your thoughts and comments into the discussion pile… the original discussion is all still there at the bottom as well).
What follows was published on May 14 and has not been edited or updated other than the November 2014 update at the end. The original comments and discussion are also appended. The stock he focused on most, UEC, has bounced from $1 to $1.80 and back a couple times as uranium prospects (and prices) have fluctuated. Uranium is up a bit again in the last few months, to about $40 now (the recent low is $30, the highs were big spikes to $70 in 2011 and $140 in 2007).
Dr. Kent Moors is pitching the upcoming electricity crisis as a reason to invest in his newsletter and reap your riches from the panic — I imagine you’ve seen this ad, because readers have been peppering me with it since it started running yesterday.
The first couple pages of it are mostly about how horrific things get when electricity production is compromised, with the huge hit to the economy from closed power plants and/or brownouts or rolling blackouts when generation can’t keep up with demand. He has a graph he uses over and over again that shows a gap, at some undetermined point in the near future, where electricity demand will be 16% higher than generation capacity. Here’s a bit of the spiel:
“Bottom line: The cost of a 16% electricity void would result in the massive loss of human lives and trillions of dollars.
“And make no mistake, we are on the brink of a crisis… a 16% electricity void that could decimate the global economy…
“Of course, world leaders aren’t going to let that happen. And in the rush to solve the crisis… you have an extraordinary opportunity.”
Here’s some more of Dr. Moors whetting our appetite:
“…this has happened twice before in the history of energy.
“Both times, it created a slew of new millionaires.
“In fact, the last time this happened, folks who got in early and followed the right signs had a chance to turn $1,000 into $1 million. And that’s on just one trade…
“The evidence makes the case: This crisis is happening again for the third time. And while it’s not 100%, there’s no denying this opportunity could change your life.
“I’ve been tracking this situation for eight years waiting for the right moment to get in. And I can tell you without a doubt:
“The pendulum is starting to swing and the upside is going to be huge.”
OK, so… wanna get a 10,000% return? Me, too! How does he think we can do that?
Well, as you’d know if you had the patience to sit through the first interminable minutes of the presentation or read through a few pages of blather (don’t worry, there’s no shame in NOT reading that far — sifting the blather every day is the strange path we’ve taken, but most people aren’t goofy enough to do that), he’s teasing nuclear energy and uranium. Here’s a bit of that:
“World Leaders Agree: This Fuel is Vital
“As I mentioned, I advise 27 governments on energy matters. And I can tell you right now, every single one of them considers this fuel vital to the world’s energy mix.
“In other words, we can’t do without it. Period.
“That’s because this fuel can do what oil, natural gas, and coal can’t.
“Like I said, it’s 9,500 times more powerful than oil… and 100 times cheaper.Are you getting our free Daily Update

“And get this: This fuel is 100% clean. In fact, it generates zero greenhouse gas emissions.
“In other words, unlike oil, natural gas or coal… it won’t kill the planet.
“As you probably guessed, I’m talking about uranium… the fuel that generates nuclear power.
“Now, I realize nuclear power is very controversial, especially after the accident in Japan in 2011.
“And maybe you’re in favor of nuclear power, and maybe you aren’t.
“But the fact remains, nuclear power is an essential part of the global energy mix, accounting for 16% of the world’s electricity.”
Not the first time we’ve heard the “uranium will boom again” argument, to be sure — uranium collapsed after the Fukushima disaster in Japan, which spurred both the shutdown of Japan’s large nuclear fleet and the global “rethink” on nuclear power, particularly in Western democracies that have the luxury of debate and hand-wringing, but it has also been widely predicted as a commodity likely to boom both because of Japan’s gradual re-start and the continuing development of new nuclear plants in China and India, and because of the drop in supply (at least to the US) caused by the end of the “megatons to megawatts” program that had us cooperating with Russia to recycle their unneeded plutonium into uranium fuel. The end of “megatons to megawatts” was actually on December 31 last year, so I’ve been expecting uranium prices to rise this year — and many investors (and newsletters) have been predicting sharp jumps.
You can check out his presentation here if you’d like to see his arguments about Japan and Germany desperately needing to reconsider their fear of nuclear energy, and about the many countries who rely on uranium for at least a quarter of their electricity (particularly those who would otherwise be completely dependent on natural gas from Putin’s Gazprom or on coal).
But yes, the basic pitch is, “uranium prices should surge” — here’s some more, in his words:
“Uranium Demand is Off the Charts
“Right now, there are 434 nuclear plants worldwide consuming about 180 million pounds of uranium per year.
