(Bloomberg) -- Materials stocks are taking full advantage of September’s unwinding of momentum trades as the year’s previous best performers are seeing outsized selling pressure, while the worst performers are enjoying a nice bump.One such trade seems to be -- sell can maker Ball Corp., which has been the best performing materials stock so far this year, and Mosaic Co. -- the year’s worst performer.The fertilizer producer has suffered from a declining outlook for phosphate, while Ball has benefited from brighter growth expectations. But Mosaic has gained about 18% since the start of this month, with an especially pronounced move on Tuesday as Wall Street praised its plan to lift its buyback and curtail production. Meanwhile, Ball has fallen about 10% since the start of September, with most of that selling pressure coming in the last two days.Similar trades are affecting other outperformers within the sector, including Ecolab Inc. and Air Product & Chemicals Inc., which saw a two-day sell-off this week. What had been the underperformers -- such as International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., Albemarle Corp. and Eastman Chemical Co. -- are enjoying a rotational bump, even as their stock prices remain low year-to-date. Steel and industrial metal stocks are also catching a bid.READ: Materials Stocks Hurt by Trade War Outperform as Hope Emerges“Ball has a great management team” and the market likes the company, but the shares have gotten “ridiculously overvalued,” Vertical Research Partner analyst Chip Dillon, who has a sell rating on the stock, told Bloomberg by phone.

BROOMFIELD, Colo. , Sept. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL) and the University of Colorado Boulder today announced a partnership to introduce Ball's infinitely recyclable aluminum cup ...
Ball Corp's (BLL) latest launch of aluminum cups might help the company go a long way in replacing plastic products with sustainable beverage packaging options.
A game-changer for the industry, Ball's latest innovation will debut in September with additional roll out during the fall at major entertainment and sports venues across the U.S. BROOMFIELD, Colo., Aug. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ball Corporation (BLL) today announced the launch of a pilot of infinitely recyclable aluminum cups in the U.S. Ball developed the aluminum cup over the past several years as an alternative to plastic cups for use at home and in other areas where plastic cups are common, including indoor and outdoor venues across the country. The pilot will produce a limited supply of aluminum cups through 2020 for use in such locations, which include entertainment venues and major concessionaires.
(Bloomberg) -- Beer pong may be getting more environmentally friendly.Ball Corp., the 139-year-old packaging company that has benefited as beverage companies shift away from plastic amid pollution backlash, is launching an aluminum cup.The company says it can supplant the red Solo cups that dot college campuses and picnic tables around the U.S. with a product it calls “infinitely recyclable.” It also has eyes on the beer cups sold at major professional sports stadiums, some of which will start using the product this fall.The new product will be more expensive than its competitors, but the company is betting that younger consumers concerned about plastic pollution will pay a premium to drink beer from a more sustainable cup.“We think they’re willing to make that choice,” said John Hayes, chief executive officer of the Broomfield, Colorado-based company. “They know we’ve polluted our world and they want to do something about it.”Hayes said the cups will initially cost around 25 cents each. A pack of 100, 16-ounce red Solo cups is available for $16.95 on Walmart.com, or around 17 cents per cup.Ball, the world’s largest seller of aluminum cans, has been one of the top performers in the S&P 500 Index this year, with its shares surging more than 70% despite tariff headwinds. More craft beer is produced in cans these days, while Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. are experimenting with selling Dasani and Aquafina brands of bottled water in aluminum as consumers turn away from plastic.Aluminum has more value than plastic in the recycling market, part of why it’s considered more sustainable. Cans are also less likely to float away in the ocean.Ball has been working on the aluminum cup for seven years and is investing a “couple hundred million” dollars to build a plant that will make the product, according to Hayes.The pilot test will start this week at a major university that has pledged to reduce its use of plastic. The cups should be available at retail stores in 2021, Hayes said.To contact the reporter on this story: Craig Giammona in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Anne Riley Moffat at email@example.com, Jonathan Roeder, Lisa WolfsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
