TSX Mining Stocks Also Listed on the ASX
Interested in mining stocks that are dual-listed on the ASX and TSX? We’ve rounded up a list of the biggest dual-listed mining companies.
As the mining industry continues to flourish, investors may be interested in some of the top TSX mining stocks also listed on the ASX.
Listing on both the TSX and ASX has increased in popularity thanks to companies that wish to reach more investors while also maintaining trading variation on two separate markets.
Read on for a breakdown of why companies dual list and the top TSX mining stocks that are also available on the ASX.
Why do ASX mining companies dual list?
As previously mentioned, Australian and Canadian companies that dual list on both the ASX and the TSX tend to do so in order to cast a wider net and increase the number of investors they can reach. By gaining exposure to more than just one market, miners stand a greater chance of obtaining financing and raising the capital needed to fund the exploration of their assets on a grander scale.
There is, of course, a second worthwhile reason that encourages Australian companies to seek out the TSX and vice versa — this springs from the knowledge that these companies will be operating on not one, but two markets, each with its one unique way of trading and operating.
Another intriguing component of listing on more than one exchange is that miners can take advantage of the price difference that exists between two markets. When investors know that they can purchase a stock or security on one market and sell it on another — a strategy known as arbitrage — there is a higher possibility that a dual-listed company that can provide this way of trading could be seen as a more appealing option than one that cannot.
Lastly, dual listed companies often times benefit from increased liquidity. Since trading on two specific markets will generally attract a greater number of investors, these companies are of the mind that the demand in their stock will increase and in turn so will the liquidity of those stocks. According to Investopedia, “Along with the increased liquidity and choice, the bid-ask spread on the stock tends to decrease, which makes it easier for investors to buy and sell the security in the market at any time.”
