The unique combination of experience in the finance and science industries has given Matt Badiali a key perspective necessary for sound investment advice in the natural resource markets. For example, he has mentioned that a major shift in the energy industry is coming as the technology for batteries is advancing. Currently, there is a huge demand for lithium-ion batteries that is driving miners forward. However, there is another metal that is going to produce a bottleneck for battery production. That metal is cobalt. Cobalt is much rarer than lithium and as a result, will increase the cost of production for batteries.

In the mining industry primary deposits of cobalt are exceedingly rare and only 2% of cobalt as a result of direct mining. It is predicted to that the demand for cobalt is going to increase by a factor of 30% over the next four years. The world’s most abundant supply of cobalt is housed within the Democratic Republic of Congo a nation known for its instability which is forcing miners to look other places to source the valuable metal. Over the last year, the price of cobalt has more than doubled, and demand is expected to continue to exceed supply for at least the next two years.

Canadian miners have taken notice of the recent trend in cobalt prices. Canada actually houses one of the world’s largest natural cobalt deposits underneath their soil. As such right now represents the opportune time to begin investing in this valuable precious metal. Cola prices should continue to climb for at least the next several years, and it is possible to generate them seriously impressive returns on your investment if you were to invest at this very moment.
