Given the scale of the original reaction to troubles at Japan’s Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant, it’s interesting to see the degree to which uranium ore prices have stabilized since March. Especially since the crisis itself is doing anything but.

Indeed, via RBC Capital markets on Wednesday:

Shares in Rosneft were up 1.7  per cent on Wednesday, boosted by a buyback plan that is widely seen in Russia as preparation for the state-controlled group’s planned controversial stock- swap with BP.The modest $200m stock buyback announced late on Tuesday is hardly a game-changer in the context of the multi-billion dollar dispute raging around the proposed Rosneft-BP deal and the opposition generated from BP’s existing Russian partner, AAR. But, given the timing, it looks like Rosneft is increasing the pressure to try to secure a deal.
