As July continues forward, which lithium stocks do investors have their eyes on?
Lithium stocks are a sector that we mention a lot on this site. Compared to gold stocks and silver stocks, lithium often can feel less popular. Little do many investors realize, lithium is one of the fastest growing materials at the moment. Recently we have discussed copper stocks a lot on goldstocks.com, and lithium stocks are performing well for a similar reason.
Now you might be wondering, what is that reason? Well, lithium stocks are going up in value because of electric vehicles. The EV market has been growing strong year after year, with millions of them already on public roads. Most production electric vehicles use lithium-ion batteries within the powertrain. So as the demand grows for EVs, the demand for lithium grows as well.
Lithium is used in more than just electric vehicles. There is a large variety of products that use lithium-ion battery technology. This has made lithium one of the most in demand materials in the world right now. Back in January, President Joe Biden announced a commitment to replace the federal government’s 650,000 vehicles with EVs. Biden also stated that the U.S. government intends on achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. This will just help the lithium market grow even more, possibly causing its price to increase over time. As the price of lithium grows with its demand, there are many lithium stocks to watch. These can be lithium mining companies or battery corporations. Let’s take a look at three lithium stocks that are performing well in mid-July.
