Barrick Gold Corporation

LIVENT CORP. shares closed in the red on Thursday on their first day of trading on the NYSE. The stock traded nearly 11.5 million shares and hit as high as $16.98 as it debuted in the market. The lithium producer’s IPO price was below expectations and first traded at $16.25 at 10:05 A.M. ET for 1.99 million share. The stock’s IPO price was $17 and was expected to price at $18 to $20 a share. The company holds the lithium business of pesticides maker FMC Corp. CEO Paul Graves is optimistic though and has said, "The demand pattern for electric vehicles goes on and on, and continues to accelerate,” said Graves, who was previously FMC’s chief financial officer. “I see a real challenge for our industry to meet that demand.” He also said, "We understand there has been a bit of a tug-of-war sentiment around demand and supply in the lithium space,” said Graves. But the stock drop “doesn’t really change our long-term plan and thesis."
