Maintaining $350 Fair Value Estimate After Albemarle's Q3 Results; Shares Undervalued

Analyst Note

| Seth Goldstein, CFA |

After updating our model to incorporate Albemarle's third-quarter results, we are maintaining our fair value estimate of $350 per share. Our narrow moat rating is also unchanged. At current prices, we view Albemarle shares as undervalued with the stock trading in 4-star territory. For long-term investors looking to invest in the lithium industry, Albemarle is one of the largest lithium producers globally and owns two of the best resources in the world. This resource advantage underpins our narrow moat rating based on the company's cost advantage.
