Interest in cobalt continues to surge, with increasing demand for electric vehicles driving the market.

At the moment, cobalt supply isn’t sufficient to meet this impending demand, and prices for the metal are on the rise. Many investors are looking to cobalt-focused companies as a way to take advantage of this exciting environment.

To help investors get an idea of the current cobalt company landscape, we’ve put together a list of TSXV-listed cobalt stocks with year-to-date gains. All companies listed had a market cap of at least $10 million as of October 16, 2017.
