Chinese alumina prices have jumped to a five-month high on news that at least two refineries in the province of Shanxi are being shut down pending environmental inspections. Shanghai aluminium prices have risen on concerns about the potential knock-on effect on metal production in China. Alumina is the intermediate product derived from bauxite used to smelt aluminium.

Alcoa: Strong Q4 Numbers Can’t Hide Its WeaknessAlcoaAlcoa (AA), the leading US-based aluminum producer (XME), released its fourth-quarter earnings on January 16 after the markets closed. The company reported revenues of $3.3 billion during the
Alcoa: Could There Be a Surprise in Its Q4 Earnings? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Alcoa As we noted previously, aluminum producers, including Century Aluminum (CENX), fell sharply last year and aluminum prices fell. Alumina was relatively strong in 2018 amid supply disruptions. While Alcoa (AA) stock also fell last year, its earnings were actually strong due to higher alumina prices (AWC). Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expect Alcoa to post an adjusted EBITDA of $3.0 billion in 2018, which is ~30% higher than its 2017 EBITDA. ## Fourth-quarter estimates Looking at the fourth-quarter estimates, Alcoa is expected to post revenues of $3.35 billion in the fourth quarter. The company posted revenues of $3.39 billion in the third quarter and $3.17 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017. Alcoa’s adjusted EBITDA is expected to fall to $717 million in the fourth quarter from $795 million in the third quarter. While Alcoa’s fourth-quarter numbers don’t look that bad, the real test could be in 2019. Analysts expect Alcoa’s adjusted EBITDA to fall to $531 million in the first quarter of 2019. Although analysts expect the company’s EBITDA to rise in the following quarters, the estimates seem to be assuming higher aluminum prices from the current levels. ## Key drivers Falling aluminum prices (RIO) have dented Chinese aluminum smelters’ profitability. Later in 2018, Chinese smelters decided on capacity curtailments. The situation is particularly bleak for smelters that don’t have captive alumina refineries. The alumina-to-aluminum ratio is elevated, which hurts standalone smelters’ earnings. While alumina has come off its highs and the alumina-to-aluminum ratio has come down, it’s still high compared to historical averages. Alumina prices might fall more in 2019, which could hurt integrated producers like Alcoa. Alcoa’s fiscal 2019 estimates appear to be on the higher side compared to other metal prices. Next, we’ll discuss how analysts are rating Alcoa before its fourth-quarter earnings release.

Alcoa: Could There Be a Surprise in Its Q4 Earnings? ## Alcoa Alcoa (AA), the leading US-based aluminum producer (XME), is scheduled to release its fourth-quarter earnings on January 16 after the markets close. Overall, 2018 was a terrible year for metal and mining companies. Alcoa wasn’t an exception. As aluminum prices fell amid concerns about China’s slowdown, aluminum producers, including Alcoa and Century Aluminum (CENX), also fell sharply. ## Aluminum prices Aluminum prices were volatile last year. In April, prices rose to multiyear highs following the RUSAL sanctions. However, we saw a sharp sell-off in aluminum after the sanctions were relaxed. The RUSAL sanctions could be waived after the company restructured its board towards the end of 2018. Alumina held the baton for volatility last year. Alumina saw several wide price swings. From the RUSAL sanctions to the curtailment of Norsk Hydro’s Alunorte refinery, a series of disruptions hit alumina markets (AWC) (S32). ## Fourth-quarter earnings While 2018 was a somber year for Alcoa, the company managed to generate a surprise in its third-quarter earnings. Alcoa posted better-than-expected earnings and announced a $200 million share buyback during its earnings release. The move led to a sharp rally in Alcoa’s stock after its third-quarter earnings release. However, we saw weakness in Alcoa in the fourth quarter amid the broader market sell-off. In this series, we’ll see what analysts expect from Alcoa’s fourth-quarter earnings. We’ll also discuss how analysts view Alcoa ahead of its fourth-quarter earnings release.

As we noted previously in this series, Alcoa (AA) and other aluminum producers—including Century Aluminum (CENX)—are having a terrible year as aluminum prices have plunged. With the recent fall in aluminum prices, several Chinese smelters are losing money.
In March, President Trump imposed a 10% tariff on aluminum imports. While Century Aluminum (CENX) responded positively to the move and announced a smelter restart a few days after the tariffs, Alcoa’s (AA) response was measured from the very beginning. The tariffs have affected Alcoa in several ways.
Yesterday, the United States lifted sanctions on RUSAL, the leading Russian aluminum producer. In April, when the sanctions were imposed, aluminum prices (XME) surged to their highest level since 2011. Falling aluminum prices have also led to negative price movements for aluminum producers, such as Alcoa (AA) and Century Aluminum (CENX).
Alcoa (AA), the leading US-based aluminum producer, fell 9.0% in November. Alcoa has fallen 41% in 2018. Century Aluminum (CENX) and Rio Tinto (RIO) have fallen 54% and 6.3% year-to-date, respectively, based on their closing prices on November 30. In this part, we’ll discuss why Alcoa stock fell 9% in November.

The Section 232 tariffs were President Trump’s first move in the trade war. Since then, President Trump imposed tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods. The US-China trade war and the general slowdown in China’s aluminum demand have taken a toll on aluminum prices, which hurt aluminum producers’ earnings.
Aluminum prices topped the $2,500 per metric ton level in April amid Rusal sanctions. Alumina prices have been more volatile than aluminum prices (XME). The global alumina markets have been rocked by a series of supply disruptions this year, especially at Norsk Hydro’s (NHYDY) Alunorte refinery.
