SQM downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital

BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson downgraded SQM (SQM) to Market Perform and lowered his price target to $31 from $47. The analyst warns that a lithium rebound or a bottoming in sentiment may take longer and that the company's earnings trajectory no longer warrants a bullish outlook. Jackson also states that while the possibility of "meaningful downside" is uncertain, SQM stock already trades at about a 3-times EBITDA premium relative to Albemarle (ALB).

Sell
SQM initiated with a Sell at Vertical Group
Vertical Group analyst James Bardowski started SQM with a Sell rating and $23 price target. The company has relatively high exposure to lithium spot markets, where prices are at risk of moving lower as supply outpaces demand near-term and an end to China's new energy vehicles subsidies comes into sight, Bardowski tells investors in a research note. Further, increased spending at SQM "will stretch an already limited balance sheet," adds the analyst.

Citi sees lithium as 'buyer's market,' downgrades Livent to Neutral from Buy
Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar downgraded Livent (LTHM) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $13 from $15. The analyst also reduced his price target for Neutral-rated Albemarle (ALB) to $88 from $92. Following a site visit to the Salar de Atacama and meetings with SQM's (SQM) CFO, Juvekar gets the sense that the lithium market "has become a buyer's market." Chinese buyers seem to have become more aggressive and China's new energy vehicle subsidy cuts may weigh on the market beginning in the second half of 2019, the analyst tells investors in a research note. While Albemarle and Livent's volumes are secured under multi-year terms, pricing for future volumes could come under pressure as new conversion capacity ramps up in 2019-2020, contends Juvekar. He reduced his valuation multiples for both stocks as "competition in the lithium market increases."
