This major lithium producer is trading near multiyear lows

Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (SQM) has dramatically underperformed the market since it peaked early last year. The stock has plunged 47% over this period, whereas the S&P 500 has gained 8%. Consequently, while the index is hovering around all-time highs, the stock is trading near two-year lows.

Such a great divergence is likely to lead many investors to wonder whether the stock has become a bargain, particularly given the exciting growth prospects of lithium. As a result, the Chilean company could be one of the top lithium stocks to buy right now.

Guru stock highlight

In the third quarter, the emerging markets investment committee initiated a position in Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE:SQM).

In May 2014, Production

The Chemical and Mining Co. of Chile ([url=http://www.gurufocus.com/stock/sqm]SQM[/url]) is definitely a laggard. It is in sectors that are currently unpopular, its earnings have not surprised on the upside since June 2012, and the consensus of analysts' estimates of future growth are a decline of 15% this year and 4% in 2014. The most recent catalyst that sent the stock tumbling to a price that might interest a value investor like us is that the Russian potash giant Uralkali began a price war to gain market share. As a result, all manufacturers of essential agricultural fertilizers, who must now match these

Chile’s [b]Sociedad Quimica y Minera[/b] (SQM) is the world’s largest producer of lithium and a major producer of iodine. Chile is the world’s largest lithium producer, thanks to its abundance of dry lake beds — known as salars — that are a far cheaper source of the metal than elsewhere around the world. In addition, Sociedad Quimica y Minera produces and markets specialty plant nutrition (SPN) fertilizer, such as potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate and potassium sulfate (see chart below).

Government-Driven Investing Recommendations
Say you and I are friend And let's further assume you're fabulously wealthy. You've come to me for advice. What would I tell you to do with your money? I'd tell you to do three things. The first: Buy farmland. Sounds nuts, I know. Farming is technical, labor intensive, highly risky and remarkably capital intensive. But mark my words: Agricultural economics are going to undergo a sea change in the next 20 years. The reason: Biofuel. Right now, "biofuel" means corn-based ethanol. That's changing -- fast. Chemists and biologists are engineering what will amount to no less than an agricultural
