Why is VUL Stock losing value?

Previously one of the renowned financial institutions, Goldman Sachs updated its price targets for lithium in 2022. As a result, most lithium stocks listed on ASX and other financial markets across the globe crashed and lost a significant percentage in their valuation.

Goldman Sachs said they had set a target of $60,000 per tonne in 2022, but the current statistics suggest otherwise. They currently expect the trading price of lithium to be around $54,000 in 2022; in 2023, its price will drastically reduce to only $16,000.

VUL, a lithium stock listed on ASX, got a severe blow from the new price targets for lithium. As a result, they lost 25% in the valuation in the last 5 days and 13% in the intraday trading session today.

  1. Vulcan energy expects to verify that all organisations are carbon neutral across Vulcan Group annually.
  2. They anticipate ensuring 100% renewable energy is used to power demonstration and commercial plants.

Conclusion

VUL is a significant lithium stock on the ASX and was one of the prominent lithium stocks due to its valuation. The company was founded recently in 2018, but its team of highly qualified industry experts and its zero-carbon lithium company caught the attention of investors. The company is sitting on the massive resources in the Upper Rhine Valley of Germany, which aims to dominate the lithium market scene in Europe. But the current price targets for lithium resulted in the lithium company shedding a significant amount of value.
