five-materials-stocks-that-aren-t-letting-geopolitics-ruin-2014-for-investorsFeatured

The last couple of weeks have been rough for broad swathes of the materials sector as a result of increasing nail-biting over the Chinese economy, to say nothing of the increasingly volatile geopolitical conflict that is spilling over from the Russia-Ukraine border.

Thankfully,  Equities.com’s Small-Cap Stars Basic Materials index is here to provide investors with compelling alternatives. The following five stocks have been generating double-digit returns in 2014, and have continued to climb higher over the last week as the Chinese economy continues to show signs of significant pulling-back, and as the Eastern European situation becomes ever more dangerous and unpredictable.
