And the institutional ownership of Vertex is almost double that of Alcoa, future projected market is four times that of Alcoa, and last but not least... Alcoa is an industrial material company and shouldn't be compared to a pharmaceutical research and development company. The markets and margins (intellectual property) are apples and oranges.
Try again short.
That said, Alcoa is an attractive buy here if your thesis is that we are not going to sink into another recession. ~ Good luck in that regard. Myself, I am bullish. Dow 20,000 within 3 years.
