TradingView Chart

What’s up with the Neometals share price?

Neometals shares have bounced from 6-month lows today. The company attracted buyers when shares were fetching 92 cents apiece at the close yesterday.

With the share price sliding from former highs of $1.95 in April, selling pressure has been on the stock and prices have now traced 39% lower this year to date.

The share jumped back on 13 May when the company announced a deal with Mercedes Benz to build a lithium-ion battery recycling plant.

However, the joy was short-lived and the share continued in its downtrend soon afterwards. The company did release an investor presentation today, although nothing to be considered price-sensitive.

In the update, Neometals explained that it is an “emerging, sustainable battery materials producer… underpinned by proprietary, green, processing technologies [with] 16 granted patents [and] 54 Patents pending.”

Investors certainly don’t appear to have reacted poorly to the update, that’s for sure.

Alas, despite no market-sensitive updates today, investors have bid the share upwards in line with strengths in the wider sector.

Indices tracking the materials and mining sectors are each booking gains today, reversing downward trends in both segments.

In the last 12 months, the Neometals share price has secured a 110% gain, despite trading down in 2022.
