Predominantly Lithium mining and have been doing very well lately
i'm up 636% as of today and they are talking about hitting a billion $ trading cap within a couple of years, definitely worth a look
Seen in article "Tesla And Other Tech Giants Scramble For Lithium As Prices Double":The four companies that currently control the lithium space—Albermarle (NYSE:ALB) in Chile and Nevada; SQM (NYSE:SQM) in Chile; FMC (NYSE:FMC) in Argentina; and Sichuan Tianqi in China—are about to make way for the new entrants.

[Insert Big Grin here.]With more than one hundred million sold every year, bikes may just be the transportation of the future. To get there though, a technological gap needs to be closed. Fortunately for bikers everywhere, entrepreneurs are starting to come up with promising solutions. If these start-ups have their way, cycling could see significant advances in the very near future.
Good luck keeping up.
Shares of potash and magnesium producer Karnalyte Resources gained 23.46 percent last week to $2.21. The company is aiming to develop its Wynyard carnalite project utilizing a solution mining process. Karnalyte announced its 2015 year end results on March 30.
There was no news from Karnalyte this week to explain the company’s rise in share price last week. However, CEO Robin Phinney was featured in a podcast on Wednesday, speaking about the company’s plans for the project.
And the metal's use in electric bicycles can enable them to both run longer and extend their batteries' lives.
China produces more than 80% of rare-earth minerals globally
Honda worked on alternative after China restricted exports
http://world.honda.com/news/2016/4160712eng.htmlMagnets developed by Daido Steel Co. without heavy rare-earth minerals will be used starting with the Freed minivan scheduled to begin sales this fall
In addition to the shape of the magnet, Honda revised the shape of the rotor to optimize the flow of the magnetic flux of the magnet. As a result, the hot deformed neodymium magnet that contains absolutely no heavy rare earth became usable for the drive motor of a hybrid vehicle, demonstrating torque, output and heat resistance performance equivalent to those of a motor that uses the conventional type of magnet.
Daido Steel has been procuring magnetic powder, the raw material for magnets, from Magnequench International Inc. (located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada), and Daido Steel will work together with Magnequench to develop new types of raw magnetic powders for the purpose of realizing enhanced magnetic properties.
Welcome to the Lithium-ion Age
Global lithium S&D analysis highlights opportunity for high-quality assets
The emergence of the Electric Vehicle and Energy Storage markets is being driven by a global desire to reduce carbon emissions and break away from traditional infrastructure networks. This shift in energy use is supported by the improving economics of lithium-ion batteries. Global battery consumption is set to increase 5x over the next 10 years, placing pressure on the battery supply chain & lithium market. We expect global lithium demand will increase from 181kt Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE) in 2015 to 535kt LCE by 2025. In this Lithium 101 report, we
analyse key demand drivers and identify the lithium players best-positioned to capitalise on the emerging battery thematic.
So far, lithium has been the hottest metal of 2016, beating out gold, with exponential demand expected over the coming years. Although the price trajectory of the metal has been subdued in recent months, the fundamentals behind the long-term trajectory suggest strong potential for long-term growth. Price doubling from 2014/2015 was first seen in China and is now being felt worldwide, with lithium hydroxide prices from $16-20 and carbonate prices from $12-14 thousand USD per ton.
http://seekingalpha.com/news/3198441-ni ... 1_2b?ifp=0Confirming earlier reports, Japan's Nidec has agreed to buy Emerson Electric's (NYSE:EMR) motors and electric power generation business for $1.2B, in an all-cash deal expected to be completed by the end of the year. The transaction continues Nidec's expansion of its motor business through multiple foreign takeovers, including the acquisition of Emerson's motors and controls division in 2010.
I smell lots more car loan defaults... and more sales of ebikes.The world economy remains in a "low-growth trap" and weaker conditions in advanced economies will persist into 2017, the OECD has warned, predicting global growth this year to expand by only 2.9%, the lowest rate since the financial crisis.
In the short term, however, electric vehicles could actually lead to a spike in the oil price, according to Dwight Anderson, the legendary commodities investor who cofounded the hedge fund Ospraie Management.
His argument is that huge oil projects, the kind that produce 100,000 to 500,000 barrels a day, cost billions of dollars and take years to develop. If developers believe that long-term demand for oil is likely to fall because of the rise of electric vehicles, they won't commission these projects.
That would reduce supply and could create a period in which the oil supply has dropped but electric vehicles haven't yet taken over. Anderson said:
Anderson is bullish on oil more broadly, citing "all of these negatives in terms of production." He cited a 65% drop in capital expenditure at major oil companies.
"So of the major approvals of formal investment decisions, from '07 to '13, we averaged over 40 a year. In 2014, we were under 15. Last year, we were under 10. And so those are the projects to come on in '18 to '19, and they're not going to come on.

Since previously they have refused to state their sales data, this would suggest that a "good" result is coming......
....as it should be, since Tesla have pulled every sales trick in order to boost sales, including heavy discounts ( they previously said they would never do that) , tasty trade in/up deals, referal incentives, reintoducing the cheaper 60kWhr modS, ....etc etc.
They know they have to demonstrate a growth in sales and try to target the 50,000 cars Musk said they would sell in the second half of 2016 ( sold <20,000 in the first half !)
So ..expect a good sales figure , probably 20-25,000, but the big question is can thay get to that 50,000 by Yr end ?
However, i doubt they can get anywhere near the 80,000 sales Musk said they would reach for the full year !
Nervous time for anyone with TSL stock.
Au Contraire, mon ami? (I beg to differ?) "The world" LOVES "cheap". My vote? Better cycling infrastructure and the Bettery-Electric powered bicycle. No more empty seats (and loads of empty cargo space) in a large, heavy, expensive, vehicle that sits around parked most of the time.

Otherwise known as "going short" as opposed to "going long" on a stock, it allows you to profit by taking advantage of a crashing stock. Best done in the shorterm, as interest charges (And similar mechanisms, like ETF fees) erode longterm returns.LockH wrote:Huh? Explain, please?
If Tesla cannot produce the results the market expects .. ( and Tesla itself forcast), then they will not be able to raise the fresh capital they need to continue producing those exciting products.liveforphysics wrote: I don't think it really matters at all what happens this quarter, next quarter, next year, next 2 years etc.
The whole world is going electric, Tesla makes the exciting electric products the world wants. Nobody else has a supercharger network in the ground, nobody else has a product that isn't a fumbled-punt in EV form.
