TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly This integrated producer of aluminum and the world's largest miner of bauxite is a TOP PICK. Recently reported earnings support a 30% ROE and cash reserves are growing, while the company buys back shares and retires debt. It trades at 10x earnings compared to peers at 21x and is valued at 1.5x book. We recommend placing a stop loss at $31, looking to achieve $60 -- upside of 25%. Yield 0.8% (Analysts’ price target is $78.64)

PARTIAL SELL
Are benefitting from high aluminum prices, driven by the Russian war. Lots of ups and downs. Take profits or exit, if you own. Eventually, shares and aluminum prices will decline.

DON'T BUY
Inflation will be transitory. Alcoa is hitting 2018 resistance, and won't move much past $62.

DON'T BUY
Minerals have had a huge run. How sustainable is this underlying demand? He thinks there will be a pullback, as with BHP. Don't buy something top of market. If you've made money, take some off the table. At these levels, stay away.

BUY
Continue to own this into earnings.

COMMENT
They report Thursday. They reported a great quarter last time. However, many cyclicals have peaked. Aluminum goes into everything, and the rising cost has squeezed gross margins of a lot of the buyers.

HOLD
Would hold but not buy more. Aluminum names might top base metals. So important in light weighting vehicles. EV is also a tailwind. There is consumer product demand too which is cyclical. Diversify in the base metal space.

SELL
He thinks will rollover. It's been far too high up along with other commodity stocks.

BUY
They're not getting credit for delivering a great quarter. This is not the Alcoa of old.
non-base metal mining
DON'T BUY
Sold this over a year ago. It has gotten ahead of themselves. There are better values in less cyclical businesses that will have long term earnings growth. It is exposed to commodity prices. It is probably too late and the rebound has already happened.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 26/19, Down 18%) He sold it in September.
non-base metal mining
SELL
He sold last year. It has since taken another hammering. Aluminum price will benefit from a stronger economy. This is a light metal and so every new generation of cars and airplanes will use it. There is nothing special about AA-N and it is a difficult place to be.

BUY on WEAKNESS
A cyclical stock, so wait till it's beaten up. AA is in good shape with strong cash flow and they're a low-cost producer. China has cut back on capacity, so we're close to a turn.

TOP PICK
Aluminum is a growth metal because it's light. Incredibly low price. Deleveraged, cut costs. Still generating free cash flow at low commodity prices. Don't need much to go right to move forward significantly. Aluminum prices are bottoming, he thinks. Over time, demand will grow. Sees earnings doubling over the next year or two, which will impact the stock price. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $38.82)
non-base metal mining
BUY
Only metal stock they hold. He is bullish on aluminium prices as there is demand from the automotive sector. The best in the business. A volatile stock. OK to own if you have a relatively long term horizon (5 years +).
