Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Lithium prices will remain well above the marginal cost of production through at least the remainder of the decade, leading to excess profits and return on invested capital for Arcadium.

Bears

Lithium prices will fall as new supply comes online faster than demand, which will weigh on profitability. Arcadium's plans to increase its lithium production capacity could prove value-destructive in the wake of lower prices.

Company Profile

Arcadium Lithium is a pure-play lithium producer that was formed in the Allkem-Livent merger in January 2024. Arcadium should benefit from increased lithium demand via higher electric vehicle adoption, as lithium is a key component of EV batteries. The company's low-cost lithium carbonate production comes from two brine resources in Argentina. Arcadium also produces spodumene, a hard rock lithium upstream concentrate, from a mine in Australia and operates downstream lithium hydroxide conversion plants in the United States and China.
