08-19-2016: Specialty Chemical Mining Company May Ride the Electric Car Boom

What would speculative investors do when they see analyst projections for a company's earnings jump such as the one depicted in the chart below?

Jumping on board this speculative specialty chemical company with mining interests concentrating upon lithium used in car batteries would suggest riding the electric car boom. Albemarle Corporation (ALB) also skirts the "clean energy" industry with a second revenue-generating bromine specialty used in environmental controls in the oil drilling industry. Our overall assessment of this stock is negative due to problems with fundamentals, but speculators might want to consider an obvious potential turnaround situation if the company's restructuring, recent acquisitions and divestitures pay off.

Our recent article on Albemarle Corporation (ALB) is in the Archives Section near the bottom of this page.

Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 08/20/2016

(Updated once a week, usually on Saturday except when less than 5 trading days in the week.)

Note: Zenith tries to pick only stocks which are shortable, but sometimes stocks appear afterward on the SEC Regulation SHO list of stocks which are not shortable, which is beyond our control. On some stocks, Zenith may hold more than the number of shares it trades in its inventory. Thus the "short" sale of such a security would technically not be a "short" sale for us and not subject to SEC rules regarding selling securities which are not deliverable. Also, stocks pop on and off the list available for shorting on successive days, so the presence of a stock on the current SHO list doesn't mean it was there at the time it was shorted.
