Commodities, Lithium and Chile
05/05/2016 10:00 am EST
Our latest buy recommendation is an indirect play on the bounce in commodity prices, asserts global expert Nicholas Vardy, editor of Bull Market Alert.
Lithium producer Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile S.A. (SQM) is a chemical and mining company with its headquarters in Santiago, Chile.
SQM produces iodine and its derivatives, lithium and its derivatives, industrial chemicals, potassium and other products and services.
Here’s why I expect SQM to continue its recent rally even as markets consolidate their gains.
First, the global market for lithium is expected to at least double by 2020. This is driven by increasing demand for rechargeable batteries, which are used to power consumer electronics and electric vehicles.
You may have heard that Tesla Motors (TSLA) is constructing the Gigafactory, which will produce rechargeable batteries for half a million vehicles by 2020.
Second, SQM has a major competitive advantage in the production of lithium. It owns the brine fields of the Atacama Desert in Chile which contain the world’s largest source of lithium brine -- the most cost-effective source of lithium.
Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile S.A. has been hitting new highs. The firm holds some of the most fertile lithium-producing ground on earth, and should continue to soar as lithium demand continues to explode in the coming years. SQM remains a buy.
