Just yesterday, we highlighted an opportunity in Lithium Americas (LAC), which opened at $21.76. This morning, LAC is set to open at $24.53 and could see $26 shortly. Remember, with EV demand accelerating, and hopes for a green future, lithium miners are struggling to supply the market. That’s a substantial catalyst for companies such as Lithium Americas.
Another way to trade the lithium boom is with Livent Corp. (LTHM), which just broke out from consolidation. If it can now break above prior resistance around $26.80, it could see $30. The stock could also benefit as the company nears earnings on November 4 at 5pm EST.
