|Elon Musk’s Shocking REVENGE on Buffett
The two billionaires are engaged in a secret war for the world’s lithium supply.
But Musk has the ultimate “trump card” in his pocket:
A $2 lithium firm that owns an asset in the world’s “Saudi Arabia” of lithium.
My sources say a deal may be brewing that could ensure Tesla’s billions... and lose Buffett a fortune.
Best of all, early investors can make out like bandits on this under-the-radar lithium story.

|Solar Restart on the Horizon
|By Megan Dailey
Written Sunday, October 23, 2016
|“We want to be a place to restart community after a natural disaster.”
It sounds like a doomsday prepper's dream or a bid to save the world. Wal-Mart's plan is to be totally removed from thegrid, powered only by renewable energy sources and lithium batteries, by 2020. Ambitious as it may sound, it's been a boon to an industry falling intoa lull.
Ever since the extension of theinvestment tax credit (ITC) late last year, investments in solar companies have slipped.
The market expected to see a sudden increase in new solar installations in the rush for installers to get thebiggest credit. Instead, the country’s solar installers... took a break.
Without the sudden pressure to get new projects underway, companies and individual buyers alike have relaxed,causing solar capacity growth to do the same.
But don’t think that means you should ignore solar stocks. In fact, this may just be the best time to buyin...
Elon Musk's $16 Billion MistakeHe’s one of the most famous business tycoons of our time.
His car company, which launched a highly controversial sports car just before the recession of 2008, is now the biggestelectrical vehicle maker on the planet.
His $5 billion "Gigafactory" will soon account for more than half of all global lithium-ion battery production.
But this one mistake may end it all.
Find out what Elon Musk did while managing his biggest and most important company... and how it may cost himeverything.
Wal-Mart, for all its boasting, isn’t the only company building a renewable base. In fact, it’s not eventhe biggest!
The Solar Energy Industries Association’s biggest corporate solar installer lineup currently reads like this:
- Target (147 megawatts)
- Wal-Mart (140 megawatts)
- Prologis (107.8 megawatts)
- Apple (93.9 megawatts)
- Costco (50.7 megawatts)
Other big solar installers include Kohl’s, Ikea, and Macy’s. Each has a goal of being mostly, if notcompletely, powered by clean energy within the next few years.
These large-scale installations are becoming a larger part of solar's growth this year, even as that growthslows.
Without the hype to keep them up, solar stocks are slowing as well. But given the long-term outlook on the technology,that may just be giving savvy investors a chance to grab up the best stocks at a bargain.
GTM Research expects that solar capacity will increase steadily through 2020, though recent research suggests therewill be a lull through 2017.
Investors shouldn’t worry about a single year’s worth of slow growth, however — not in anindustry that’s had such steady increases since its inception and is expected to continue expanding for the foreseeable future.
The Energy Information Administration estimates that solar will account for about 1% of all U.S. energy by next year,up from 0.6% in 2015.
That may not seem like a lot, but it’s just the beginning. The whole world is working to move away from fossilfuels now, which means the market for renewables has been busted wide open.
And just because we haven’t yet seen the surge in installations that many expected doesn’t mean itwon’t happen at all.
The ITC offers a 30% tax credit on all solar installations under construction by the end of this year. That numberdrops to just 26% after 2019, 10% after 2021, and cuts out completely in 2023.
New projects still have a little bit of leeway in getting those credits, and the rush may come at the last minute.

Anyone looking to be 100% solar anytime soon is also going to need some battery power to back it all up.
Energy storage and renewable technologies go hand in hand, if only because there still needs to be electricity runningwhen the sun goes down.
Large-scale energy storage especially will see some growth in coming years as energy grids all over the world integratemore solar and other renewables.
The biggest growth in these large-scale systems is yet to come!
Now, by the time that happens, I expect we’ll have much better solar panels as well. We’ll haveto, in fact! Right now, the best designs only function at about 28% efficiency, not nearly enough to make up for all the fossil fuel power the worldwants to retire.
Renewable energies are struggling to find the balance between efficiency and price. For obvious reasons,higher-efficiency solar panels cost more, which makes widespread adoption a challenge.
But the price is dropping as capacity is growing, helped along by projects like Wal-Mart’s. Themore low-cost installations are adopted, the easier it will be to integrate the technology everywhere else.
I wouldn’t blame you for hesitating to buy into solar right now. The recent history of the biggest installerin the country, SolarCity, reads more like a cautionary tale than a success story.
But even the skeptics are only seeing a slowdown through 2017. Beyond that, business will pick up again, and probablyeven reach new highs as the final deadline for the ITC comes into play!
Without a doubt, this is far from the death of the solar industry.
Until next time,

Death of the iPhoneYou might not believe that what you're about to see is real, but I assure you the video has been left unedited.
There are no special effects and no trickery — this technology exists today, and it's about to turn the entire technology industry onits head.
Wired magazine says it will "change the way we interact with the world."
Mark Zuckerberg says it will be used daily by "billions of people" across the globe.
And we've uncovered the $7 tech firm making it all possible. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you don'twant to miss.
