    I don't understand the huge swing in this stock. It not only produces lithium but a great added bonus fertilizer! Hopefully the next quarter report will be fantastic! I unfortunately bought in high 90s!

    Lithium price is up today, SQM is following MOS, CF down. SQM is the world's largest lithium producer (under its Lithium and derivatives business segment), in addition to its other business segments: Specialty Plant Nutrition, Iodine and derivatives, Industrial Chemicals, and Potassium.

    Hoping for at least a rebound of some sort. There is no EV industry without lithium.

    Don't get it. Here we have a company that has done really really well even relative to Lithium producers generally and it is sitting at a PE of less than 23.00 last time a checked. Understand that PE is just one metric and it not always an accurate read on the health of a company. But how can a company that is doing this will...with huge long term and structural tail winds be sitting at PE of less than 23. Only thing I can think of is that long term investors are concerned that somehow the Chilean gov will mess things up and that the government is a perceived risk that needs to be factored in? Anybody else have an idea.

    PS. In comparison, last time I checked ALB had a PE of over 100.00. Lithium America's has seen its stock price go up big time and it does yet product Lithium.

    I just don't get it.

    Premarket doesn’t look good at all this morning. Even worse riding on the back of the down days of last week. Is this finally the recession starting that has been talked about for the last couple of months. GLTA.

    $38k per mt last q. Lithium prices are now about double that! Contracts roll off and SQM gets much higher pricing!!
    And fertilizer prices are also off the charts!

    SQM reported on Wednesday a near twelve-fold rise in first-quarter net profit to $796 million ($2.79 per share), an increase from US$68.0 million (US$0.26 per share) reported for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Will pay an interim dividend of $2.78 per share.

    I sure would like to understand these swings in lithium stocks. It’s been going on for months now.

    Just read about the water/environmental issues. Sounds like there either was, or is, tremendous political pressure on the company because of their massive use of local water resources. Would love to learn from the board any insights on this.

    SQM held up better then most, the last 30 minutes is when it dropped pretty hard after a fairly good recovery during most of the day. But at the end the day the selling got intense.
    Those last minutes can get crazy, stuff is being throw out the window or they are buying hand over fist!
    Friday and today selling picked up at the end of the day. At some point a Money Runner will say it is over done. Right now they are driving out the weak hands!!

    So . . .? The litium glut only lasted two days? Why are we up today?

    Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile's dividend payout ratio is currently 12.08%!!!
    SQM ($96 stock price) did $2.79 eps this quarter.
    ALB ($236 stock price) did $2.16 eps this quarter.
    SQM stock price should be much higher.
