Metals Stocks Gained on Rising Commodity Prices India's small and mid-cap metal and mining stocks are making a comeback. In past two months. Sarda Energy share price rallied 42%, Moil share price zoomed 35%, GMDC share price surged 34%, Prakash Industries share price jumped 22% and NALCO share price moved up by 21%.
Indian Metal outlook Largecap metal stocks picked up steam since the demand for metals in China stabilized and the scope of infrastructure development in India has increased. Hindalco, Vedanta, Tata Steel and Hindustan Zinc nearly doubled their market cap in the past nine months. Globally, industrial metals have rallied almost 30% in 2016 and there is no stopping this overwhelming rally for now.
Rising demand for Metals in Global market On Tuesday, the Bloomberg Industrial Metals sub-index posted its biggest five-day increase since 2011, as zinc touched a nine-year high. Prices rallied after China's top economic commission permitted a $36-billion plan on new rail links around Beijing, enhancing demand for industrial raw materials. Market experts says that Small and mid-cap metal stocks were substantially beaten down for the past couple of years and they are just coming to terms with the recent rally in base metal. They will wait to see substantial pick up in global demand and may continue its rally further. Metals and Mining is a fairly unorganized sector. The cash dealings make the chances of defaulting high in this space. However, if the Demonetization effect gets the sector into the digital payment process, it might end up gaining even more. Listed companies who are willing to work in an organized market may be highly benefitted as the chance of default will be significantly reduced.
