Probably a better play than Alcan (AL-T). Seems to be executing better. Not a fan of aluminum at this time.

Commodity that will depend on demand for global growth of new products. This company has struggled. Alcan (AL-T) is a better company regarding management and its ability to grow with earnings.

Any commodity sensitive stock is going to be a trading stock and very few of them are growth stories. The MACD has a higher low, which is positive divergence, so you are possibly going to get a rally from here. Would look for a rally in order to get out of it as opposed to buying.

(A Top Pick May 11/06. Down 20%.) Expect it will eventually merge with some large international player. Not a great short-term pick here.

Aluminum industry has not done as well as some of the other metal industries. Alcan (AL-T) has a great advantage because of its cheaper power costs and this would be his preference.

A well diversified metal company. A lot of their customers are aerospace and they make a lot of highly engineered aluminum products for them. Has under performed other metal companies dramatically.

Alcan (AL-T) and Alcoa (AA-N) have not been participating in the strong market that we've had for metals. Partly because of high energy costs. Alcan is sheltered with extremely low cost hydo electric generating capacity, so prefers Alcan and has been buying it.

Has some labour problems. If the trend of a weakening US$ continues, it could be expensive. Prefers Alcoa.

Likes the aluminum companies, but prefers the nickel and copper producers. Prefers Alcan as they have very strong downstream. Should do well with either aluminum company.
