  • This Materials Giant Continues Its Long Climb Back

    By Bob Ciura - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: AA, ACH, CENX

    Aluminum is a basic material that is a necessary input in our society. Since aluminum goes into everything from homes to soda cans, the underlying stocks are tied to the health of the global economy -- for better or for worse.

    By Fani Kelesidou - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: AA, ACH, CENX

    Alcoa (NYSE: AA) is definitely a big-time player in the aluminum business. But with global aluminum production going through the roof and aluminum prices touching rock-bottom levels, is there any room left for this 125-year-old top dog to shine?

    Alcoa's five-year stock chart is the definition of a falling knife portraying the industry's woes, as well as the uphill battles yet to be fought:

  • Is It A Good Bet To Invest In The Aluminum Industry

    By Damian Illia - June 10, 2013 | Tickers: AA, AWC, ACH

    There has been a rapid increase in primary aluminum production capacity globally and lower aluminum prices have hurt companies’ sales.

    According to the latest survey by MetalMiner, “a fair amount of bearishness and skepticism appears to prevail in the general mood as far as a 2014 aluminum forecast is concerned”. Recent production cuts should support a move higher, but it is unclear if they are going to be enough more »

    By Declan Fallon - March 12, 2013 | Tickers: AA, ACH, PAL, PLG, SWC
