5 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: Wolfden Resources Leads the Pack with 80 Percent Gain

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) slumped 7.87 points this past week to close at 549.08.

Minutes from the Bank of Canada’s January meeting, during which the governing council decided to keep interest rates unchanged at 5 percent, were released last Wednesday (February 7). They show that while the council believes the economic slowdown has helped relieve inflationary pressures, just over half of the components of the consumer price index (CPI) have been growing at a rate above 3 percent. That indicates persistence in broad-based drivers of inflation.

The council also said it is concerned about shelter prices, noting that a rebound in the housing market in the spring could keep CPI numbers above its 2 percent target, even if other components continuing to approach the target.

Zinc Stocks: 5 Biggest Canadian Companies in 2024

Zinc prices were mostly rangebound in 2023 as the market shifted into oversupply. Although the sector is expected to cool further in 2024, ultimately experts agree that its long-term fundamentals remain healthy.

Once demand rebounds along with the economy, stunted supply may once again push zinc prices to the upside.

For investors interested in zinc, the Investing News Network has gathered the biggest TSX- and TSXV-listed zinc stocks by market cap. The list below includes zinc miners and explorers, as well as companies pursuing zinc as a secondary metal.

Zinc Price Forecast: Top Trends That Will Affect Zinc in 2024

2023 saw the zinc price take a slide as the market entered surplus territory.

The expectation at the start of 2023 was that zinc would see modest demand growth during the year. “The recovery of China and the resilience of demand from countries such as India will help return global consumption to growth after it fell in 2022,” Jonathan Leng, principal analyst at Wood Mackenzie, told the Investing News Network (INN) at the time.

However, after forecasting 2023 zinc demand growth of 2.1 percent in April, the International Lead and Zinc Study Group cut its projection to 1.1 percent in October. By the year's end, CRU Group was estimating a contraction of 0.4 percent.
