EV Makers “Not Doing Enough” to Tackle Human Rights Abuses in Cobalt Supply Chains

Industry giants, including major electric carmakers, are failing to tackle human rights abuses in their cobalt supply chains, Amnesty International warns in its latest report, released on Wednesday (November 15). The report comes two years after Amnesty exposed a link between child labor in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the battery supply chains of leading EV and electronics companies such as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). In “Time to Recharge,” Amnesty ranks 29 companies on how well they have been tracking their cobalt sources since its first report was released. Demand for cobalt, a key element in the lithium-ion batteries used to power EVs, is expected to soar in the coming decades as sales of EVs surge. table.inline-text-ad { border-left: none; border-right: none; } .inline-text-ad h1 { font-size: 18px !important; font-weight: bold !important; } .inline-text-ad p { font-size: 1.0rem; } “Do you want to invest in cobalt – … Continue reading

VIDEO — Thom Calandra: Favorite Lithium, Graphite and Uranium Stocks

Thom Calandra of the Calandra Report follows a wide variety of commodities, and at the recent New Orleans Investment Conference he took the time to discuss the lithium, graphite and uranium sectors. Despite the excitement surrounding the lithium sector, Calandra has just one lithium stock in his portfolio: Nemaska Lithium (TSX:NMX). “It’s at an all-time high right now, and it’s a producer,” he said, adding, “Guy Bourassa is doing a great job running that company with a lot of integrity and economically.” Graphite has received less attention in recent years, but Calandra said that good companies in the space have started to see their share prices move. He mentioned a couple he’s looking at currently, and also touched on the beleaguered uranium market. “You can buy a deep-value company that has a billion or $2-billion market cap, like Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN), which is $3 billion, but you can also buy some of these orphans that … Continue reading

7 US Biofuel Stocks

While the growth of biofuels exceed 20 percent per year between 2001- and 2010, it’s been an industry that has struggled recently, with production dropping by roughly four percent over the last five years, according to the World Bank’s October 2017 report. Still–all hope is not lost for the sector, particularly in the United States. In October, for example, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) relinquished its proposed changes to the US’ biofuels policy, Reuters reported, following “backlash from corn-state lawmakers” expressing concern that the changes would undermine ethanol demand. On that note, Technavio analysts have projected that the global biofuels market will rise at a compound annual growth rate of nearly six percent by 2020. The report states that “the uncertainty in global fuel prices, energy security, and the constantly rising emission levels have resulted in the growing interest towards alternate fuels.” table.inline-text-ad { border-left: none; border-right: none; } … Continue reading
