Best Performing Platinum Stocks of 2020

Updated Sep 15, 2020
The shiny, silvery-white metal platinum has emerged as a reliable alternative to popular precious metals like gold and silver owing to its stronger tensile strength, better scratch resistance and regular wear and tear. It makes it an ideal choice for daily-use jewelery. Additionally, it is popularly used as a catalytic converters for vehicles to facilitate the complete combustion of unburned hydrocarbon which passes through the exhaust system of the vehicle. Platinum also finds use in decoration and dental work. Investors often like to invest in companies which are in the platinum metal business, and have a lot of choice. However, one must note that pure-play platinum companies - that is, those operating only in platinum - are difficult to find. Owing to the common mining requirements, companies mining and processing platinum also mine other metals and minerals like gold and silver. Similarly, companies in the business of making jewelry from platinum also use other precious metals.
Companies operating in the platinum business include those which are exploring, developing and mining the shiny precious metal, or those which process and purify it for use in the required fields, or those which manufacture finished items like jewellery, dental and decorative items.
