the difference between ford and alu is at ford they had competent people
from what we've seen so far alu mgmt is not even close there
they took a great company and run it into the ground
until the management changes alu can't get out of this death spiral
Easy to say now with 20/20 hindsight, but at the time no one believed in managment either which is why the stock went below $1. 2 or 3 years from now some other joker will be saying the same thing about ALU.
