  • Wondering if the board could help me out with some numbers I'm trying to run.
    Is WL believing that they can produce 26,000 tons/annum of Li at peak capacity and what is the market rate per ton?

    FDA states that
    "Not FDA Approved for Orphan Indication"
    Could someone explain this? Meaning that the orphan status has been rejected or am I missing something?

    Tesla Lithium?

    Exactly my line of thinking (check an earlier post). Should everything in Germany come out looking good, then I can't see a reason why TSLA wouldn't buy this out. WL has what TSLA needs, and if it's vertically integrated then that just lowers the final pricing on the new TSLA models...as well as strengthens their profit margin of anything else the gigafactory would produce/sell to third parties. To me this just makes sense...plow all the savings from owning the raw material, plus plow any potential profits from muds into cutting the costs for your main product and then dominating the market. Could you imagine how disruptive TSLA would be if they could market a high quality car that you never need to pay to recharge, that is slick as hell and boasts cutting edge technology...for under 30K? That's a game changer...and that's what Musk is after.

    Buyout price $5+ and I'm sticking to it.

    Love that WLCDF targets Li production to meet the needs of 500K-1M electric cars/year...While TSLA is shooting for 500K cars per year. I'd guess that other 500K could be made up by the Germans who are being sold on the Li that'll be pulled outta NV? It's no coincidence that WLCDF has a plant in Germany...and No coincidence that TSLA builds in NV. Locked and loaded boys

    Why wouldn't TSLA buy us out?

    Understood that WLCDF hasn't produced any lithium ore at this point, but it would be foolish to think that TSLA hasn't extensively researched the feasibility of the Kings deposits, looked into all the mining claims the company holds and determined that the cost savings of being that close to such a large deposit of the MAIN ore they need to produce batteries as opposed to importing the ore from S. America or elsewhere didn't all factor into TSLA choosing NV. I'm not worried that WLCDF hasn't produced anything yet, because all the feasibility studies have shown that it's there, and we know TSLA needs it, so they'll get it how ever they need to.
    So not sure how you could say that this isn't a solid business model...it's no coincidence the two are located so close to each other...like others are saying, it would be a nice cherry on top of TSLA's sunday to integrate the entire process, from ore to finished battery...that's solid and logical business practice.

    Becoming completely vertically integrated would only further drive down the price of the batteries, which is TSLA's main goal. Even pricing WLCDF at $5/share for a buy out price would only take a few years of gigafactory operation to recoup the buyout price...and should more gigaplants go online in the future, then the savings to TSLA would be amplified. Keep everyone from WLCDF on board and running the operation, but remove the profit lines from WLCDF and let profit from mud further offset the price of the batteries. Makes sense to me.
    Buying when I can/all that I can...cause either way this stock will rise from here on out.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I've been long WLCDF for some time now, average price is .5 and this is the news I was hoping would come! Been following posts on this board daily and can't thank everyone enough for all their wisdom and excellent posts. My question to you all now is, what are your price targets?
    Here's mine:
    If news is only that the gigafactory is in NV...we get to $3
    If NV + Partnership from Tesla...god only knows...$5+??
    If positive mud news comes out then that adds another $1

    And where are you all going from here? Long term hold? Is this a $20 stock in 4 years?

    Thanks in advance to all and enjoy!!

    Went to CLCT office in Kowloon around 3 months ago or so and I didn't get anything concrete this time around except that this are still "growing nicely". I got the feeling that CLCT saw my post on the message board of the specifics that I was told on my first visit and gave the poor guy in HK a phone call and told him to not be so forthcoming with any info to investors. My take away, however, was that things are still full steam ahead in Asia and I left encouraged. Still happy to add as I'll be getting that 6.5%. True, stock could drop, but I'm terrible at timing the market.

  • Just added an additional 10% of total shares this morning below $20. Price target still remains mid term...$25-28...long term (12 months) $31...basing on growth in Asia, addition to R2000, backlogs etc. Any opinions?

    Sentiment: Buy
