They shook out most of the weak in commodities and now the vultures are picking the bones. Historically, moves down like this in commodities are followed by meteoric rises. Look at the historical charts on AA and you'll see this pattern repeated.
Basically Newemaillouis is a long time troll here. He's been put on ignore for a while by most of the rational posters. Unfortunately some fall victim to his trolling. His objective appears to be to create as much chaos here as possible. Could be a lovemonkey alt. as they always seem to appear at the same time or maybe sub4guy, or just a plain nutcase. Either way, most have put him on ignore a long time ago and he continues to troll here regardless. I think he craves attention badly. GLTY
Did he ever leave? Best to put fools who troll these boards like him on ignore.
People like love money100 and newemaillouis and sub4guy have trolled these message boards for a while under one ID or another. It's best to just put them on ignore, and let them waste their time as they spew meaningless nonsense that nobody reads.
Is that person still trolling the boards here? Amazing that these guys have nothing better to do with their lives.
Where are they getting that $1.5 bln number from?
If AA is paying 2.8315 shares of Alcoa stock for every RTI share they own. With RTI reporting about 30.8 million shares as of its most recent quarterly report, that's roughly 87 Mil x $10.00 a share thats $870 Mil.
And have immediate access to including $330 million of RTI cash on hand and up to $517 million in RTI’s convertible notes. What a steal! Where are all the fools who said this deal wouldn't go thru? Ot the ones that said AA overpaid for RTI? Never mind, you're all on ignore anyways.
stock_whiz is just a troll, he has posted under sub4guy and a myriad of other ID's since December, He is like a blind squirrel trader who occasionally finds a nut. He bashes stocks until he is wrong then just disappears or starts another ID. He owns nothing long or short. Putting him on ignore is the right course of action as all he does is repeat the obvious after it happens. People like him like to waste their time online to prove they are right because their real life has been a miserable failure.
Compare the institutional owners of AA and RTI. They are the exact same major holders.
That is why this deal will go thru. RTI is over 97% owned by insiders and institutions. And as you noticed there was some pre-leaking of the announcement. Of course SEC is asleep.
No, price is set at 2.85 shares of AA for every share of RTI NOT $41 a share!
That was a $$$$ number estimated at the time of the announcement.
RTI was around 27 before the announcement RTI jumped in price but shares are moving in tandem since then.
RTI istitutional holders will still make money but AA will now pay fair value for RTI with current AA share valuation. You will receive a lot of bashers responding to your post trying to spread lies and attacking longs. Ignore the noise from these fools.
So funny to watch these bashers, none of which have a single share posting constantly. All seem to be obsessed with being right after a lifetime of being wrong!
It's summer, and I'm enjoying mine. While most are huddled by their public library computers.
Meh, nor worried as I've seen the same fools since 2013 here none of which have made a penny.
Aluminum giant Alcoa is also a broken stock, but not a broken business. The company is transforming itself into a specialized-metals business -- one that makes lightweight and high-performance materials. With the shares down 30% in the first half of 2015, now is the time to own the stock, which is trading at its 52-week low.
Despite some hiccups in its transition, where core aluminum revenue has been under pressure, the company's quarterly and full-year earnings are projected to grow.
The stock has a consensus buy rating with its average analyst 12-month price target of $16.50 suggesting more than a 50% gain from the current level of around $11. Investors looking for a solid long-term bet for the next 12 to 18 months should consider Alcoa as a value play.
Finally, investors may want to consider ExOne, a maker of 3-D printers, whose stock has fallen 32% in the first half of 2015, as the company has missed Wall Street's earnings estimates for nine straight quarters.

Still, in the next five years, the company's earnings are projected to increase at an annual rate of 40%. That suggests that if or when the 3-D-printing industry takes off, ExOne may emerge as a leader. The company recently announced that it has qualified six new metals that are compatible with its direct line of 3-D printers, which gives its customers more control of what kinds of materials consumers can print objects with.
That can be the kind of advantage it needs to separate itself from its competitors such as Stratasys (SSYS) and 3D Systems (DDD). While ExOne's lack of execution remains a concern, its average analyst 12-month price target of $13 is an almost 20% gain from the current level. I wouldn't recommend diving head-first into these shares, however. But for the second half of 2015, playing contrarian with a small position may be rewarding.
Smart people won't be selling today but rather looking to buy.
This happens every year. Greece gives the talking heads on TV something to talk about all day and allows the fleecing of the weak sheepies. Everything will finish higher by end of week.
recharge the main battery. “We don't compete with the lithium-ion, we complement it,” he said.
The three European automakers, unidentified because of confidentiality agreements, have done testing and will do more, including critical crash testing, Kilmer said. “Like anything automotive, it has to go through extensive testing. It's a multi-year process to get to where a consumer can use it. One of the automakers tested it from minus 45 to 45 degrees (Celsius). That was a big hurdle,” Kilmer said.
has started construction of a $5 billion lithium-ion battery plant in Nevada that CEO Elon Musk says is vital to Tesla's goal of mass-market sales of electric cars and driving down production costs as much as 30 percent. The $100,000 Tesla Roadster's battery is good for 245 miles, but an upgrade to 400 miles between charges is in the works, the company said last month.
But research by Carnegie Mellon University professors Jeremy Michalek and Jay Whitacre found that economies of scale in battery manufacturing are exhausted quickly. Beyond a certain point, higher volume alone won't do much to cut cost, they said.
“Large factories alone aren't likely to solve the battery cost problem,” Michalek said. He and Whitacre declined to comment on the Alcoa-Phinergy battery.
Alcoa said the cost of using the battery will be the same or lower than hybrid vehicles, and competitive with gasoline.
Lynn Trahey, a battery technology researcher at the Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago, said Alcoa and Phinergy are using the right approach.
“Their aluminum-air batteries are recharged mechanically, meaning someone swaps out the components for fresh ones,” Trahey said. “They reportedly last a long time on one charge and have affordable components.
“Cars need batteries that can be electrically recharged as well, like lithium-ion. Each technology serves a purpose. When artfully integrated in a car, you get the best of both worlds.”
The lithium-ion battery in the electric Nissan Leaf has range of about 120 miles between charges, Nissan says on its website. The hybrid Toyota Prius, which uses a gas engine and battery system, has a range of about 500 miles, according to information on its website.
The aluminum-air battery is a range extender, not the primary battery. That's because lithium-ion batteries have greater power output to drive a vehicle, Kilmer said. Aluminum-air batteries have more energy but release it slowly, making them ideal to
