4 TSX Energy Stocks with Rising Net Asset Values

With working capital to spare over the past 12 months, the TSX energy stocks on our list could be expanding their resource base again

SmallCapPower | October 31, 2016: Net Asset Value (NAV) is a term used almost exclusively in the mining/ resource extraction industry. It refers to the net present value of all resource based projects that a company has under its ownership and is the base of the total valuation for those companies. That being said, the TSX energy stocks on our list today were all able to increase their NAV by an average of 34% over the last fiscal year, and with positive net working capital over the past 12 months to handle the day to day operations, could be in a position to focus on raising capital for exploration purposes.
