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

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.
