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.

Many base metals have been hit with weakened demand in the past year due to sticky inflation and higher interest rates, and zinc is no exception. Zinc supply has also faced pressure from higher mining and refining costs, causing some major zinc operations and smelters to suspend operations, with more possible if the current economic situation continues. 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.

Zinc Price 2023 Year-End Review

Zinc started 2023 in a strong position, having come close to all-time highs in April 2022.

However, zinc fell in H1 amid a rout in the base metals market. While smelting and supply issues from 2022 supported the price early on, weak demand, particularly due to a slower economic recovery in China, caused zinc to move from undersupplied to oversupplied by the end of the year. The vast majority of zinc is used in alloys and for galvanization.

After dropping in the first half of 2023, zinc remained largely rangebound for the rest of the year, staying below the US$2,700 per metric ton (MT) level. Read on to learn more about what factors impacted the market during the period.

Top 10 Countries for Zinc Production

Zinc prices reached record highs last year, but have trended lower in 2023 on growing economic uncertainty.

The commodity has suffered the same fate as most other base metals, which have been battered by concerns about Russia's war in Ukraine and the widespread economic fallout that may push the world into a a recession.

The broad consensus among market watchers is that zinc prices will do better in the years to come. This is not only because of renewed demand, but also because low prices and high energy costs have led to production cuts at major zinc-mining operations around the world. While output is expected to rebound in 2023, the International Lead and Zinc Study Group is still predicting that demand for refined zinc metal will exceed supply for the year, although modestly.

Understanding the Zinc Spot Price and Zinc Futures

The zinc market has faced volatility in recent years, with the metal seeing new all-time highs as well as lower levels.

With that in mind, it's worthwhile for investors interested in zinc to understand how zinc pricing works. Here's a brief overview of what market participants need to know about the zinc spot price and zinc futures.
