5 Vanadium Stocks to Play This Stealth Market Rally

Date:Apr 27, 2018

The vanadium stocks on our list should continue to benefit from the battery metals boom

SmallCapPower | April 26, 2018: While it hasn’t received as much coverage as lithium and cobalt, the price of vanadium has seen a significant increase, surging 459% since the start of 2016, compared to cobalt’s gain of 277%. Vanadium is generally used in steel alloys, but also has significant applications as a battery metal, with vanadium-based batteries having longer lifetimes, lower heat levels, and no risk of combustion. The Canada-listed vanadium stocks on our list today would likely benefit from a continued rally in the vanadium price.
