Last year, zinc was the best-performing LME metal, reaching multi-year highs. In 2017, prices have continued to increase, but at a slower pace.

That said, in the past month zinc has been supported by supply concerns and falling warehouse inventories, and many experts remain bullish on zinc for the rest of the year.

Most recently, Raymond James analysts Brian McArthur, Farooq Hamed and Brandon Throop gave their top zinc stocks, saying that supply tightness in the market should drive prices higher. Below we take a brief look at the companies they have on their watch list.
