The light alkali metal, lithium, used in lithium ion batteries has had its moment of being a sexy player in the natural commodities market, according to the influential opining of investment forecaster and data-watcher Matt Badiali, writer of the Banyan Hill Publishing newsletter, “Real Wealth Strategist.”
Though the need for the ion batteries seemed to blossom overnight, with everything from cars to cell phones requiring the metal, Matt Badiali predicts the sexiness is now fading fast and investors should probably start looking elsewhere.
To be fair the arc that took the lightest of metals to the top of the natural resource commodity heap was impressive. It began with car companies making battery-operated cars. Between 2016 to 2018 lithium soared from 8000 a ton to more than twice that amount. One company that extracts lithium from brine saw its stock explode more than 300%.
However, Matt Badiali has a well-earned reputation as a man who doesn’t merely crunch numbers, but rather hies himself over to where the numbers hail from to see for himself why they say what they say. In short, Matt Badiali is a man who ferrets out the chinks even in seemingly solid looking armor. And, in the case of lithium, Badiali is seeing chinks.
Even the most effective lithium battery can only hold two times as much electricity as a regular battery. This power cap, according to Badiali, will eventually limit the demand for the metal. Companies that use batteries for their products will wish to move forward and inevitably start experimenting with other metals.
Although lithium prices will probably remain attractive for a while, they are expected to start an ongoing dwindling process late in 2018 that should continue to peter downward through 2019. By 2019 there should be a surplus that will only escalate the downward spiral of lithium.
Adam Milstein is a native of the country of Israel, and he moved his family to the United States in 1981. He works in the commercial real estate business at the firm Hagar Pacific Properties. A few months ago, Adam Milstein and his wife Gila traveled to six different countries to unveil the horrifying truths about the Holocaust. The six countries they traveled to were Poland, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Germany, and Estonia. They tried to figure out the Genocide that was brought out by the Nazi Army of Germany and its European Collaborators. There were several American philanthropists along with Adam Milstein and his wife Gila, trying to find out the devastating truths.
There were mass graves in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Poland where the Jewish families were killed off by the firing of the German killing machine. The people that lived in these areas that were non-Jewish were taken on by the German Nazi Solders. Some of these non-Jewish people betrayed their Jewish neighbors that they may have been friends with for years.
Gila and Adam Milstein learned lessons that really stood out on their trip. The Holocaust lasted for many years, and it was the result of systematic racism, discrimination, and intimidation. The Holocaust was the largest Genocide in history. The German Nazi Soldiers used hatred to humiliate and marginalize the Jewish people. The non-Jewish people were set to believe that the Jews were dehumanized by Hitler, the ruler of the German Nazi Soldiers.
Europe blames the Holocaust and everything that the Jewish people had to go thru solely on the German Nazi Soldiers. Adam Milstein learned that it is against the law in Poland to use the phrase “Polish Death Camps”. Today, the Jewish people feel like theacts of the Holocaust could happen again. They will never feel safe again. During the Holocaust, Israel did not exist. After Israel was established, the Jews used this country as a hiding spot to stay safe from threats a crossed the Middle East. It is Israel’s job to protect the Jewish people from ever having to go thru a crisis like the Holocaust ever again. The Jews need to try to put the devastation of the Holocaust behind them and just hope and pray that they are safe. The Israel Defense Forces shield the lives of the Jewish people.
Adam Milstein is someone who is lucky enough to be able to express his political opinions publicly. He is a real estate guy who is employed by Hager Pacific Properties. His hard work has allowed him to have a fruitful career and a comfortable life in Southern California. Adam Milstein and Gila, his wife, are the proud parents of three daughters. Fortunately, they are also now the proud grandparents of three children.
In the eyes of their religion, this is important because it is important to churn out more generations of Jews. The existence of Jews exists upon procreation. This is something that the state of Israel encourages. Israel is all about population and numbers, because the human element is the most important. They are so gung-ho about this concept that Israel is very anal when it comes determining who is a true Jew and who can gain citizenship.
A million faceless Debbie-downers like to mope around and lament that many people with Jewish ancestry are no longer identifying as Jews. People with this viewpoint try to validate their argument by referring to the fact that, over the past 100 years, people with Jewish ancestry have assimilated into Western societies and have become disinterested with Judaism. However, when you look at the big picture of history, what appear to be happening, now, does not really matter. This is because of the fact that Jews have always survived and stayed themselves throughout the ages. Of course, some individuals left the civilization and joined other civilizations. However, this is something that has always happened, but it has never led to the dissipation of Jewry.
People who have strong, secure Jewish identities are the rock that keeps the presence of Jewish identity solid and in existence. Such people have always existed, and still exist. These are the types of people who really keep Jewry going. Adam Milstein has a special place in his heart for these types of people, because they are the future of the religion, identity and culture. Adam Milstein, himself, is one of these people.
