      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • A 1 million dollar contract has nothing to do with anything.

      In fact, I am amazed that the any website would even bother to announce such an insignificant contract....which represents about 1/18,500 of ALU's 2012 annual revenue.

      The stock is just drifting in a range leading up to Apr 26th, when 1Q13 is announced.

      Appropriately, given ALU's history, and a seasonally low expectation for 1Q, there are far more nervous investors right now, than confident ones....which explains the move down from $1.78.

      If ALU reports a bad Q, or any result that suggests the 2013 restructuring is not working, then investors are in store for a long, dismal year. ALU is walking a tightrope and cannot afford a misstep.

      No one is going to cut ALU any slack after so many false starts over the last 6 years.
