Albemarle has withdrawn its indicative proposal for Liontown due to 'growing complexities with completing the transaction'.
No deal + upcoming passive selling could take the stock lower. The trading halt gives LTR and Hancock time to come up with something.
Shorts in LTR have jumped over the last month and the last reported short interest is 218.76m shares (10% of shares out; 9x last-30-days-ADV)
