Use weakness in lithium stocks as opportunity. Look at Lithium Americas (LAC), for example.
After pulling back, the stock has again caught major support dating back to April. We also have to remember that the lithium supply can’t keep up with demand, which could force lithium prices even higher, which is another positive for LAC.
Plus, according to Reuters, “Lithium producers are growing anxious that delays in mine permitting, staffing shortages and inflation may hinder their ability to supply enough of the battery metal to meet the world’s aggressive electrification timelines.”
They added, “There were 45 lithium mines operating in the world last year, with 11 expected to open this year and seven next year, according to Fastmarkets. That pace is far below what consultants say is needed to ensure adequate global supply.”
