5 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: ValOre Metals Leads with Jump of Over 50 Percent

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) was on the rise last week, finishing at 627.93.

On Wednesday (July 12), Canada’s central bank raised interest rates for the 10th time since March 2022. The 25 basis point increase took the benchmark rate to 5 percent, marketing the first time it’s been at that level since April 2001.

As in the US, Canada’s aggressive increases are part of the country’s fight to bring inflation down to the 2 percent level. Inflation in Canada measured 3.4 percent in June, and market watchers are now waiting for the next reading on July 18.

Against that backdrop, a variety of TSXV-listed resource stocks made moves over the last five days. Read on to find out which companies rose the most during the period and what was affecting their share prices.

FAQs for TSXV stocks

What is the difference between the TSX and TSXV?

The TSX, or Toronto Stock Exchange, is used by senior companies with larger market caps, while the TSXV, or TSX Venture Exchange, is used by smaller-cap companies. Companies listed on the TSXV can graduate to the senior exchange.

As of April 2023, there were 1,713 companies listed on the TSXV, 953 of which were mining companies. Comparatively, the TSX was home to 1,789 companies, with 190 of those being mining companies.

Together the TSX and TSXV host around 40 percent of the world’s public mining companies.

How much does it cost to list on the TSXV?

There are a variety of different fees that companies must pay to list on the TSXV, and according to the exchange, they can vary based on the transaction’s nature and complexity.
