What is a premium/discount?
The amount the Trust's closing price is trading above or below the reported NAV (net asset value), expressed as a percentage of the NAV. When the Trust's closing price is greater than the Trust's NAV, it is trading at a “premium” and the percentage is expressed as a positive number. When the Trust's closing price is less than the Trust's NAV, it is trading at a “discount” and the percentage is expressed as a negative number.

The above table and line chart present information about the differences between the daily market price of a Trust unit and the Trust’s reported net asset value. The chart’s horizontal axis shows the premium or discount expressed in basis points. The market price is determined by the midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the Trust’s listing exchange, as of the time that the Trust’s NAV is calculated (usually 4:00 pm Eastern time).
Nuclear radiation exposure is minimal compared to the many sources of radiation we could come across in our daily lives. ~80% of an average person’s annual radiation exposure comes from natural sources, such as sunlight, soil and water, while ~18% comes from man-made sources such as computers, cell phones and x-rays. Less than only 1% comes from the nuclear industry, including uranium exploration and mining.
