As the Vanadium Price Heads for a New ‘Normal’, Small Caps are Feeling the Pinch


Date: Apr 10, 2019

Like other battery metals, investor interest has waned somewhat in vanadium, especially after the recent steep drop in the price.

The Chinese price for vanadium pentoxide flake peaked at $US33.90 ($47.52) a pound in early November last year but has since slid more than 57 per cent to $US14.40 a pound.

Meanwhile, the Chinese price for ferrovanadium hit a high of $US143.50 a pound in late October before sinking 62 per cent to $US54.50 a pound.

This has impacted the share prices of several junior vanadium hopefuls.

There are 43 ASX stocks with exposure to vanadium, and 30 have lost between 4 and 92 per cent of their value since November last year.
