Cameco Downgraded to Market Perform at BMO on Share Price Appreciation

05/10/2021 05:40

09:32 AM EDT, 05/10/2021 (MT Newswires) -- Dual-listed Cameco Corp. (CCO.TO, CCJ) was downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital Markets on Monday.

Analyst Alexander Pearce maintained a $23 price target on the Canadian uranium producer.

Pearce said the downgrade is due to Cameco's strong share price move following its quarterly results.

"Cameco remains a 'go-to' stock for many investors looking for uranium exposure due to its size and liquidity," the analyst said in a note to clients.

"Looking ahead, ongoing improving sentiment could see further upside, particularly if Cameco successfully delivers on further long-term contracts, which could drive trading multiples through its historical range, however, at this point we believe the stock is fairly priced," Pearce said.
