VIDEO: These Metals Are Moving Higher
With just two months to go in this volatile economic year, there are several big trends to ride at this moment ... and well into 2023.
One of them is the ever-increasing demand for battery metals.
In fact, just over the past year, the forecast for battery metal demand has soared by 70%!
There’s perhaps no one in the world more qualified to discuss the price path of these metals, than commodities expert and Weiss Senior Analyst Sean Brodrick. I like to call him the megatrends maven.
He has visited lithium, gold, silver and copper mines across the globe and says there are currently “tons of investment opportunities in that world.”
Sean is the editor of Wealth Megatrends, Supercycle Investor and Resource Trader.
Members of those services are sitting on open gains of more than 37%, 26% and 20%.
Among the highly profitable plays in recent days is a trade Sean made in the lithium market.
Lithium is often referred to as the “white gold” of the future … a renewable future.
And prices for lithium continue to set record highs.
According to Asian Metal, lithium carbonate in China — which is essentially the global benchmark — has hit 537,500 yuan ($75,000) a metric ton. That price is nearly double the level from the start of this year.
One of the driving forces is the high demand for lithium batteries to power electric vehicles.
And EV sales continue to rev up. The International Energy Agency says global EV sales doubled in 2022 to 6.6 million vehicles. That figure accounts fornearly 9% of the car market.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance says within just three years, EV sales will reach 10% of global passenger vehicles, growing to 28% in 2030 and 58% by 2040.
In today’s four-minute video, Sean explores how to play the high demand for this coveted metal, and how momentum of EV sales will continue to carve its price trajectory.
Sean strongly feels that now is the time to hop on board, while many stocks in this sector are at a discount:
The way these prices are going, these companies aren’t just mining lithium, they’re mining money. There is tremendous profit potential there.
Demand is so strong that the average forecast is that we’re about to go into a serious lithium deficit.
The good news for consumers is there are a bunch of big mines that will come online in 2026, meaning lithium prices may fall again. But that also means that the supply and demand squeeze is supposed to get even tighter, making investment plays very interesting.
Sean and I also discuss:
• A lithium stock that generated triple-digit gains in his model portfolio.
• The next bull run for a major asset class.
• A commodity at the bottom of a two-year cycle that’s projected to bounce higher in 2023.
• Two exchange-traded funds in a market beefing up production.
