4 Rare Earth Stocks Poised to Power Higher on U.S. China Tariff Dispute Uncertainty

Today we have identified four Canada-listed rare earth stocks poised to power higher on U.S. China tariff dispute uncertainty.

Rare earth metals are a category of 17 chemical elements in the periodic table that include scandium, yttrium and 15 lanthanides. These metals and alloys are used in the production of rechargeable batteries, magnets, cell phones, computer hard drives, guided missiles, flat screen monitors and, radiology equipment.

Since the late 1990s, China has provided 80% of the rare earth metals imported by the United States (Bloomberg, 2019).

Recently, companies that offer rare earth metals in China have soared after Chinese President Xi Jinping visited one of the country’s rare earth companies. This has led to speculation that the government plans to use this sector in the Sino-U.S. trade war to retaliate against President Trump’s threat to stop supplying chips and processors to Huawei Technologies Co.
