I agree, I rarely come here anymore.
There's too many bitter people like stock whiz-sub4guy who have no stake in any company but are here trolling daily.
I guess he like's to waste his life because no one is listening to him. Sad.
And why do you worry about what I post? I don't take kindly to folks who lie and attack others. I guess you could use the ignore button no?
I think you may not realize the poster newemaillouis has been harassing longs here for a year or more. His trademark is to take something someone said many months ago and blow it out of context or run with it over and over while he himself changes his predictions constantly and tries to act as if he predicted the future forgetting everything he said in the past. Pretty much a troll who many have ignored but I think many posters find humor in the garbage he posts.
Best to just ignore people like that. I pretty much have and find this place a waste of time for investors who have along term outlook on AA. But knock yourself out.
We've all seen this louis guys rants in the past. Best put him on ignore like every one else here. Basically an online stalker. I don't post much here anymore because there's very little real info. Just people like him seeking attention.
I agree, this is the dumbest post of the year and a flat out lie. Just goes to show what a fear monger this toad cheeze-whiz actually is.
The warning given by any financial advisor is that past performance does not guarantee future success. However, performance can come in cycles where stocks that did the worst in one year rocket to the top of the charts in the next year.
In what could be one of those "worst to first" comeback stories, aluminum producer Alcoa (NYSE: AA) is poised for a nice recovery in 2016.
After peaking at $17.75 in November 2014, the stock began a year-long slide to a low of $7.81 this November.
As an industrial metals stock, it was caught in a sector-wide bear market. Indeed, most commodities declined significantly over that span as some pundits declared the world to be in a deflationary spiral.
But Alcoa has done this before and recovered. In 2011, shares peaked at roughly the same high and slid to roughly the same low, although they stayed down for two years. The result was a giant trading range, which suggests the next move will attempt to follow previous rallies.
Several technical indicators already point to a tradable recovery on the horizon.
In trading ranges, my favorite momentum indicator is stochastics. The monthly version is low enough to be considered "oversold," meaning it is stretched to the downside as supply gets exhausted. The weekly version, seen on the chart above, set a higher low in November than it did this summer even as price set a roughly equal low. This divergence between price and indicator often precedes a change in price trend and, in this case, that would be to the upside.
Moving on to the short-term chart, we can see AA creating a base that ran into and then through the declining trendline drawn from February. And late-December trading resulted in a nice breakout through short-term resistance formed over the prior two months.
In an ideal world, there are a few more conditions I'd like to see in place before buying, but many profits have been missed waiting for perfection.
No surprise there. There are losers like that on every yahoo message board. They all have the same things in common. They own no stock in the company nor are they short. Most likely, as you wrote, disgruntled employees or folks with lot's of time on their hands. Either way, best to put them on ignore as they bring nothing of value.
Hedge fund Elliott Management Corp. on Monday disclosed a 6.5 percent stake in Alcoa, sources told CNBC on Monday.
The activist investor supports the company's decision to split into two, sources told CNBC, but takes issue with management's ability to produce the needed margins.
Elliot is also pushing Alcoa to sell its power generation unit.
