Jack Lifton: “2014 — a great year for rare earth prices.”
January 10, 2014 — Tracy Weslosky, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of InvestorIntel, interviews Jack Lifton, founding principal of Technology Metals Research LLC and Sr. Editor at InvestorIntel on what to expect in the technology metal sector in 2014.
They start with a discussion on the substantial impact of new policies surrounding environmentalism in China’s rare earth mining industry and how the deployment of new regulations will impact the global rare earth supply. After an overview on what is really happening in China, Tracy asks about pricing and Jack responds with: “2014 a great year for rare earth prices.” and then follows this up with his forecasts for 2014.
In their discussion, Tracy asks Jack about the rumors surrounding the survival of the fittest in the resource market and whether or not there is any validity to these rumors. Jack denies the rumor and adds some breadth to the overall sector by expanding his usual list of favorite technology metals to copper by identifying copper as ‘the key technology metal’.
