On Stockhead today, the big news in lithium is that South America’s footprint just got a Brazlian times bigger, after the Warren Buffett-backed Chinese carmaker BYD revealed plans to build a plant in Brazil with capacity to produce 150,000 electric vehicles per year.

Which is, clearly, quite a lot of cars.

Reubs and/or Cam (it’s hard to tell where one stops and the other starts, some days) got all the goss on that late yesterday here, in case you missed it.

Also, that was on Stockhead yesterday. Today Reubs is at it again, bringing you Rick Rule’s rules for finding that 10-bagger resources stock, Eddy “The President” Sunarto showcases a stellar return to life for ASX biotechs, and Nads McGrath has the skinny on travel stocks making travel easier.

But first, to the day ahead.



The following stocks went into trading halts yesterday, and are expected out in the coming days:

Johns Lyng Group (ASX:JLG) – Capital raising.

Sacgasco (ASX:SGC) – Capital raising.

GreenTech Metals (ASX:GRE) – Pending the release of an announcement related to further exploration results from the company’s Ruth Well project. GreenTech just wants to make sure the market’s well informed… it’s good like that.

NickelX (ASX:NKL) – This one’s pending additional information regarding an advanced nickel and lithium project acquisition option.

Titan Minerals (ASX:TTM) – Pending the release of an announcement in relation to a resource estimate at the Dynasty Gold Project in Ecuador.
