    Analytical review:

    • The Company has the biggest capitalization in the "Aluminium"sector among the issuers listed on the US stock market;
    • According to the latest report on the first quarter 2016, the company's revenue decreased by 15% from 5.82 billion USD to 4.95 billion USD. However, the EPS factor (earning per share) amounted to 0.07 USD, which is 0.02 USD better than market expectations;
    • The industrial giant's results are greatly influenced by aluminium prices evolution. Since the beginning of June, the rise in aluminium quotes at LME has exceeded 3%, which will have a positive effect on Alcoa's financial performance in the nearest future.;
    • In January 2016, the company signed a long-term $2.5 billion agreement with Boeing (#BA) to supply details for airplane manufacturing. Also, Alcoa had signed a contract valued at more than 1billion USD with Airbus. Alcoa's production will be 3D printed and involve the latest technologies;
    • More than 60% of the company's stock belongs to institutional investors. The biggest shareholders are Vanguard Group (8.75%) and Elliott Management Corporation (5.90%).


    • Despite the cut in income, the company's net profit exceeded market expectations. The company's growth potential is quite significant. Realization of partnership agreements, increase in demand and positive evolution of aluminium prices will consolidate investors' confidence.
    • Thus, we expect that the company's quotes will be rising in the nearest future.
