Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile (SQM)

Global demand for lithium is expected to surge more than 500% by 2030, according to the public-private alliance Li-Bridge.  Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile has tremendous lithium production capabilities and current reserves. Operating in one of the world’s more stable and reliable low-cost mining countries, Chile, SQM is also highly profitable. 

Shares have dipped 10% in the past six months thanks to fears of an economic slowdown. While that is a legitimate risk for 2023, over the longer haul, lithium should remain in high demand. SQM shares are changing hands for less than six times forward earnings while offering a nice 10.5% dividend yield.
