Graphite stocks are outperforming other natural resource sectors. Graphite demand is being driven by the increasing use in the latest clean energy technologies such as the Lithium-Ion Battery, Fuel Cells, The Pebble Bed Nuclear Reactors and Vanadium-Redox Batteries critical for green energy, wind turbines and solar cells. Graphite is gaining investor's interest as it is one of the few sectors in the natural resource space which has been outperforming the S&P 500. Graphite stocks are beginning to hit new highs, while gold and silver miners are hitting new 2 year lows. This demonstrates excellent relative strength in an overall weak natural resource equity environment. Why are graphite stocks outperforming? Global demand is expected to increase exponentially over the next few years as China cuts exports.
