Liontown Resources Limited (ASX: LTR)

Macquarie made the move on the belief that the outlook for lithium remains very positive. So much so, it expects prices to be at record levels for the next four years.

Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO)
Analysts at Citi have retained their buy rating and $115.00 price target on this mining giant’s shares.
