Lithium stocks, like(LAC) came under pressure in recent days.
All on news Tesla said it wants to be a lithium miner. “There is a massive amount of [Lithium] pretty much everywhere,” Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said, as quoted by Barron’s. His company is planning a new process to extract lithium from clay ores in Nevada.
While the news wasn’t great for lithium stocks, like LAC and Albemarle, investors are jumping back into these names again quickly. That’s because it could be several years before Tesla can gets its extraction technology to work to drill for lithium. In the meantime, Tesla will still need a very dependable supply of lithium for its batteries, which LAC can help with.
