Tesla's Top-Secret Plan Isn't So Secret

Elon Musk's Global Conquest Continues

"So Elon, what do you want to do tonight?"

The same thing he does every night — try to take over the world!

This isn't anything new, mind you.

We've known his ambitions from the get-go.

How did we get this insight, you ask? Actually, the master plan was leaked by Musk himself, nearly 10 years ago to the day.

Don't believe me? You can read it for yourself right here. He laid out for us a future of lithium batteries, a gasoline-free world where even our power plants are clean.

Energy positive, he put it.

So what has he been doing since conjuring this image of a clean, new world?

Well, he's been smiling the whole time... and so should you!

Musk's Master Plan: It's Not What You Think

During a recent row with Fortune, Elon couldn't help teasing the masses. It was a short tweet that was part snark, part cockiness, and pure Tesla:

Until he decides to release that Top Secret Tesla master plan, the market with will be rife with gossip. Anyone with a dime in the company will be salivating over speculation.

But there's one rub to the lithium boom that nobody is telling you about...

If Elon Musk (and his constantly growing list of competitors) ever hopes to see either of his master plans bear fruit, one serious issue needs to be worked out first.

Demand.

Just think: the lithium market is expected to triple by 2025.

Goldman Sachs projected that for every 1% rise in the electric vehicle market, worldwide lithium demand increases by 70,000 tons annually.

To put a little more perspective on this, keep in mind that increase alone represents more than one-third of global lithium consumption in 2015!

This upcoming supply crunch has ignited a desperate scramble to secure future lithium supplies.

Of course, Musk is already a step ahead... again.

And when he makes a move, you can bet he doesn't do it lightly.

The Last Piece to Elon Musk's Global Domination

A Tesla global takeover?

Sure, there's a bit of hyperbole attached to that statement.

But hey, can you really blame me?

Not since John Rockefeller has one man absolutely dominated an industry. Make no mistake about Elon's influence here. I've told you before that he is arguably the single-largest catalyst driving the lithium boom right now.

The best part for investors like us is this: we're still in the early stages of this boom.

I know it's not easy to believe that. After all, not a day goes by that we're not reminded in the media about some new plot being hatched by Elon Musk, or a new competitor that has entered the ring to challenge Tesla's dominance.

Even the lithium oligopoly — which controls 90% of the world's lithium supply — can't keep up with this boom.

That's not wishful thinking, dear reader.

It's reality.

And everywhere we look brings us back to just one place right now...

You see, it's all too easy to be enamored by the Tesla story, captivated by Musk's quest for more, more, more... but what the investment herd hasn't realized yet (but soon will!) is that the final piece to the lithium jigsaw puzzle lies beneath the sun-scorched acreage in Nevada.

It truly is that simple.

Elon knows it. I know it.

And now you know it.

That's why Musk chose the Silver State to be home to the world's first Gigafactory.

But again, the Gigafactory will never produce a single battery without an incredible amount of lithium.

Yet Musk is already making his move to secure that invaluable resource.

And I'll show you exactly who's caught his eye — you can see for yourself right here.

Until next time,
