Is the lithium stock play still running hot in Australia

Everyone needs batteries, does that really mean that lithium stocks are a good buy.  Australia’s Lithium stocks have staged a spectacular run of late. The share prices of miners such as General Mining Corp (GMM:ASX), Pilbara Minerals (PLS:ASX) and Neometals Limited (NMT:ASX) skyrocketing several hundred percent. But are we too late to get in at the right price.
Most analysts now expect global lithium carbonate demand to double or even triple by 2030. In China alone, five million so called “new energy’’ electric vehicles are expected to hit the road by 2020 and in the West the electric car revolution is moving from being of niche interest and into the mainstream. The world’s biggest mine – Talison at Greenbushes in Western Australia – produces around a quarter of the world’s lithium supply and is owned by heavyweights China’s Tianqi Lithium and US company Albermarle.

Budget 2015 Australian and Iron ore blues

The budget for 2015 in Australia is out , with tv channels, Property investors, Businessmen and the general public waiting with anxiousness to see what it brings. There is no doubt about it there is a deficit in the Australian economy, but its yet to be seen how this budget has been affected by the declining prices of the Iron ore industry and the doom and gloom climate in the oil and gas industry.
Australia's conservative government assumes the price of iron ore, the country's largest export, will average $US48 a ton in 2015-16, well below the $US60-per-ton estimate given late last year. The iron-ore price has collapsed to around $US55 per ton currently, down from a peak of $US185 per ton in 2011. The price hit a recent low of $US43 per ton in April.  Budget Day 2015 Australia [12 May 2015] Below are the links you will need to get a full bottle on all the budget news you can eat!
