What’s up with the Core Lithium share price?

Investors have sold Core Lithium shares amid a market-wide selloff on Tuesday where the benchmark had slipped 5% at the open.

Before today’s price action the stock had been lumpy after trading in a set of peaks and troughs for the past 3 months.

The upside case was also made by TMF’s Brendon Lau earlier in June as well, citing several drivers in the investment debate.

However, the Core Lithium share price has managed to stay in the green and secure a 99% gain this year to date, outstripping most other ASX shares.

The ASX lithium basket was hit hard in early June following a note from Goldman Sachs outlining its more downbeat view of the sector.

Since the update, it’s been a wobbly ride for the Core Lithium share price, and shares have again trended south as investors sell off ASX shares en masse today.

With numerous shares hitting 52-week lows – in the double digits – the downward pressure is palpable.

Macquarie had given its vote of approval for ASX lithium shares last week, adding its view on concerns plaguing the lithium debate.

It seems the verdict’s out on what’s next in store for the lithium market in the coming years.

Despite the headwinds, Core Lithium remains up more than 360% for the last 12 months.
