The Best Lithium Penny Stocks to Buy Right Now

Lithium, lithium, lithium... It's not pretty - it's a dull, whitish gray that looks like something you'd do a driveway with.

But the soft alkali metal is the metal right now, thanks in large part to its use as a battery electrode in electric vehicles. Demand is high, and shows no sign of letting up anytime soon.

One metric ton, or 2,204 pounds, of Chinese lithium is going for $51,400 right now - more than five times the price it commanded in January 2021. Lithium's performance absolutely crushed the "classic" precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum over the past year.

For investors - particularly those who love a good "cheap stock" play - this is a "target rich" environment, with no shortage of speculative opportunities.

In other words, it's a must-own - investors have to be in lithium stocks right now. I've picked out three great ones, each running under 20 bucks a share right now. In fact, at $0.90 and $2.60, two of these are classic penny stock plays.

You're going to want to get those tickers - there's incredible profit potential in small, cheap stocks like this that no one else seems to be following right now. Case in point: Just this past Friday, my lifetime subscribers just got the chance to close out a 300% winner in just two months on a position in one of these. In fact, this class of stocks has produced 12-month peak gains as high as 22,000%. I'll show you how it works here - It's part of a "buying boom" that's transforming the very nature of the markets in 2022 and handing out extreme chances to profit.

About the Author

Shah Gilani boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When options on the Standard & Poor's 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in "the pit" as a market maker.

The work he did laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX - to this day one of the most widely used indicators worldwide. After leaving Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd's TSB, Shah moved up to Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique firm. There he originated and ran a packaged fixed-income trading desk, and established that company's "listed" and OTC trading desks.

Shah founded a second hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003.

Shah's vast network of contacts includes the biggest players on Wall Street and in international finance. These contacts give him the real story - when others only get what the investment banks want them to see.

Today, as editor of Hyperdrive Portfolio, Shah presents his legion of subscribers with massive profit opportunities that result from paradigm shifts in the way we work, play, and live.

Shah is a frequent guest on CNBC, Forbes, and MarketWatch, and you can catch him every week on Fox Business's Varney & Co.
