Investors often identify themselves with a particular resource. There are lithium investors, cobalt investors, zinc investors, and gold investors. As strange as it may sound, it may now be time to add a new category - helium investors. Helium is experiencing a global surge in demand, and it's poised to grow at a 9% compounded annual growth rate. This is attracting investor interest in this historically ignored resource. Tech giants such as Google and Netflix in particular are drawing a lot of attention towards helium as they integrate the resource into their own key initiatives. As a result, helium exploration companies now find themselves in a sweet spot.
