Bears in for a Tough Ride after Alcoa’s Third-Quarter Earnings

Alcoa (AA), the leading US-based aluminum producer, released its Q3 2018 earnings yesterday, October 17, after the close of markets (XME). Century Aluminum (CENX) is scheduled to release its third-quarter earnings on October 25. Alcoa’s Q3 earnings were better-than-expected, and the stock was trading sharply higher in after-market trading yesterday.
