Recently, Matt Badiali has published about a widely used metal that he believes will experience significant increases in price over the next year. The metal that he is speaking of is not gold or silver, but instead zinc. Zinc is an important metal that is used in a number of everyday items. It has uses as part of sunscreen, various fertilizers, and even components of automobiles. Follow Matt on Medium.

Over the last ten years, the price of zinc has been relatively low. This is caused a lack of interest in the mining community in the metal and has caused supplies to decrease. This decrease in supply is going to lead to an increase in the price as demand continues unabated. Overall the demand for zinc has been increasing on average 3% each year since 2000. The last high price of zinc is currently double what it is worth now. As supplies continue to decrease around the world, this is a strong indication that we could see a serious increase in the value of zinc in the near future.

Matt Badiali believes that this signals that both investments in zinc mining companies, as well as the metal itself, will be profitable. He cautions his readers that before they make the jump and invest into a company to do their research first.
