Mega Uranium Ltd. Stock (TSE:MGA), (PINK:MGAFF) Can You Stop the Fall?

9Mega_Uranium_-_Logo.png"We should do something to make this stock go up again". This is what managers of Mega Uranium Ltd. (TSE:MGA), (PINK:MGAFF) probably said to themselves, seeing the company's shares sinking over the last three weeks. Said and done! Now, let us see the results.

Yesterday, Mega gave traders lots of information to digest. In a fresh press release, the company provided an update on its Canadian exploration activities.

It informed about several major developments: commencing a 7-hole diamond drill program designed to test a structural target beneath Mustang Lake; discovering additional REE mineralization at Byron Bay property in eastern Labrador; and signing  an option agreement with Cameco Corporation, under which Mega and Forum Uranium Corp. may jointly earn a 60% interest in the North West Athabasca uranium property in Saskatchewan.
The announcement seems encouraging enough. However, it had a negative effect on the stock performance on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSE). Instead of going up, MGA continued its fall. In the last session it dropped 6% on above the average trading volume, finishing the day at $0.80 per share.

Despite the discouraging recent performance of the shares, the company certainly has its potential. As mentioned in an earlier article, the latest filed Mega financial statements indicate positive trends.

It is enough to remind that the company reported a net income of $9.11M for the last quarter of 2010, versus a $1.08M loss for the relevant period in 2009.

Only the future will show when Mega will manage to reverse the current pull-back in the share price. A positive factor for the company is the rising, as a whole, uranium price over the last several months.

However, Mega will be able to profit from this situation after its numerous uranium projects reach the production stage. Surely, company's representatives, together with many investors, are eager this to happen as soon as possible.
