The Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO) share price is up 8.12% in afternoon trading.

Shares in the ASX lithium explorer closed yesterday at $1.20 and are currently trading for $1.28.

It was only last Wednesday, 1 June, that Core Lithium shares fell 20.8% in a single trading day.

That sell-off came as ASX investors digested a report from Goldman Sachs indicating that the lithium space has seen too much money pour into it too quickly. The influential broker believes that medium term supply will outpace the growth in demand and that lithium prices are due for a sharp correction.

Most every ASX lithium share sold off on the day.

But investors appear to believe the selling action was overdone, possibly influenced by more positive outlooks for the lithium space by other market analysts, including the team at Macquarie.

Bargain hunters helped the Core Lithium rebound 2.7% on Thursday and gain another 7% on Friday. Shares dipped 1.7% yesterday before marching higher again today.
