The No. 1 Nuclear Stock

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which advisor Charly Travers and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.

Recent Nuclear Regulatory Commission approvals to Southern Company and Progress Energy to build new nuclear reactors for the first time in decades could be the beginning of a resurgence of the nuclear industry. Charly's favorite company in this space is not a nuclear plant operator, but a company that provides waste disposal and decommissioning services: Energy Solutions. This company is uniquely positioned to benefit from a fleet of old nuclear plants going offline.
