Why are SYA shares gaining today?
While no announcement by SYA can explain today’s share price surge, the stock has been witnessing a bull run reacting to rising price of lithium, a key ingredient used to produce electric vehicle (EV) batteries. For example, lithium carbonate prices have increased five times in China over the last 12 months on increased demand. The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine has led to more demand for lithium globally as traditional fossil fuel prices are surging amid supply concerns.
Surging energy prices due to Ukraine and Russian war has strengthened the transition from fossil fuels, indirectly adding to the booming demand for electric vehicles.

Another recent development that can be attributed to the surge in share prices of SYA is the rejig of ASX indices. The company has recently been included in both S&P/ASX 300 (ASX:XKO) and All Ords index. This means passive funds tracking the ASX index must have recently bought the stock to match the underlying portfolio of the index.
The company is confident regarding its business strategy and is focused on restarting spodumene concentrate productions at NAL from Q1FY23. SYA is also looking to establish a Northern Quebec lithium hub via building on its acquisition of an interest in the Moblan project.
