Tanzeel Akhtar

Alcoa (NYSE:AA) shares are trading lower in Wednesday's after-hours session after the company reported worse-than-expected fourth-quarter EPS and sales results. The company said it expects lower quarterly results in the bauxite segment due to lower pricing and seasonally lower volumes.

Alcoa reported fourth-quarter losses of 31 cents per share, which missed the analyst consensus estimate by 34.7%. This is a 146% decrease over earnings of 66 cents per share from the same period last year.
