In 2017 Matt is advising his readers to invest in copper. According to Matt copper’s Bull Run is not about to stop because there is increased demand for electric cars. The increased demand for electric vehicles has led some financial analysts to predict that a nine fold increase in copper’s demand between 2017 and 2027. Additionally, copper is a metal that is very sensitive to economic growth due to its use in numerous industries. The two leading consumers of copper are the construction industry and the electrical and electronic industry. Both sectors are experiencing growth due to the favorable economic climate. As global growth improves, Matt Badiali expects the demand for copper to increase accordingly.
The increase in copper’s price is causing problems for Tesla, an electric car manufacturer. Codelco, a Chilean mining company, expects the price of copper to rise by 46% between 2017 and 2018. Codelco states that this will be caused by the demand for copper exceeding the supply of copper. Tesla cannot ignore this trend as an average electric car has 165 pounds of copper in it.
