    • The focus on Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) turns to the Gigafactory unveiling next week with a grand opening scheduled for July 29. The event will include a tour of the massive facility and presumably more details on EV battery production plans.
    • The Gigafactory buzz could also increase the focus on lithium supply and demand questions. Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank both expect lithium carbonate demand to almost double by 2025, although picking out potential winners and losers is no easy process.
    • Bacanora Minerals (OTC:BCRMF) already has a long-term contract with Tesla, while other companies such as Albermarle (NYSE:ALB), FMC (NYSE:FMC), Nemaska Lithium (OTCQX:NMKEF), SQM (NYSE:SQM), Oroplata Resources (OTCPK:ORRP), Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF), Critical Elements (OTCQX:CRECF), Lithium X Energy (OTCQB:LIXXF), and American Lithium Minerals (OTCPK:AMLM) have been bandied around on Seeking Alpha as potential lithium plays. Those names and more are on watch next week for volatility.
    • There's also the Global X Lithium ETF (NYSEARCA:LIT) to watch as a catch-all.

    • Boeing (NYSE:BA) has announced that high-density packages of lithium batteries like those used in cell phones and laptops pose fire risks and should not be carried on passenger planes until safer methods for carrying them are developed.
    • The risk is "continually increasing (and) requires action to be taken," said the aircraft maker.
    • A report that labels the batteries as "dangerous goods" is due to be considered in April by the U.N. International Civil Aviation Organization. The recommendations would then need to be approved by the group in October, and by a broader air safety council next year.
