Top Mining Stocks To Watch
When it comes to investing in mining stocks, there are plenty of options to choose from. This sector has been one of the fastest growing in the last year. This is due to the fact that precious metals and minerals will often increase in value during times where the dollar is slipping or the economy is bad. Obviously in the last year, this has been especially relevant. Many traders turned to mining assets when the economy tanked as a result of the pandemic. There are many different types of mining stocks in the market. The most commonly traded assets are gold and silver related. This can be anything from silver stocks to gold ETFs and more. There is also another sector that is coming up very fast in the market though. This would be lithium stocks. Lithium stocks are increasing in the market so much due to electric vehicles.
As you may know, electric vehicles are quickly becoming the future of the automobile. Most of these production vehicles feature lithium ion batteries. So as the demand for electric vehicles grows, so does the demand for lithium. Rare earth mineral mining companies are also increasing in stock price in the market. There are many choices when investing in mining stocks, so it is important to choose the sector best for you. Every sector has its ups and downs. For example, gold prices can fall if the economy begins to recover more. Or lithium prices could fall if a better battery type is found and starts being used. But these minerals have a lot of positives as well. For now, let’s take a look at four top mining stocks to watch as March 2021 continues onward.
