Interview of Long-Term Uranium Analyst Rob Chang of Cantor Fitzgerald
by Peter Epstein, CFA, MBA EpsteinResearch.com @peterepstein2
This interview of Rob Chang of Cantor Fitzgerald is based entirely on his own Uranium Sector views. Disclosure here a piece of cake — I have no prior or existing relationship with Mr. Chang, Cantor Fitzgerald or any company listed herein. Rob Chang has been a proponent of the uranium sector for years. Like many of his peers, including Rick Rule, my friend Alex Molyneux of Azarga Uranium, Chris Berry who said in 2014, something that very well come true, that the uranium sector rebound is a 2016 event. Nice call!
