Top Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Theres reason tothink that President Trump might target uranium imports for tariffs after imposing them on solar equipment back in January and then another announcing another round late last week on steel and aluminum (China has alreadyresponded by announcing planned tariffs on imports of U.S. pork, recycled aluminum, steel pipes, fruit and wine). At first glance, you might think that wouldcause concern forinvestors in small cap mining stocks like Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF) which is focused on developing critical clean energy elements (namely lithium, uranium and cobalt plus other critical clean energy elements) mostly in Canada.

The NAFTA countries of Canada and Mexico were also exempted; but those exemptions”are not open-ended” and will depend on whether changes are made to NAFTA that will satisfy Trump.
