Guru Investment Theses on Alcoa Corp

Royce Funds Comments on Alcoa - Mar 15, 2016

RTI International Metals specializes in titanium and other metals and sells primarily to the aerospace industry. Its shares shot up quickly in March when Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced an agreement to buy the company. Better-than-expected revenues helped the stock price of RF and mixed-signal integrated circuit specialist MaxLinear to climb in 2015 while earnings strength drove the rising share price of NeoPhotonics Corporation, which makes hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for high-speed communications networks.





From the Royce Opportunity Fund fourth quarter 2015 commentary.

Steven Romick Comments on Alcoa - Feb 01, 2016

Weak aluminum prices and inventory adjustments in the aerospace supply chain negatively impacted Alcoa (NYSE:AA)’s profitability and its stock price in 2015. We support the company’s decision to separate its highly engineered, value-added aerospace business from its commodity aluminum operations. As the price has declined in the last year, we have doubled the number of shares we own and are hopeful that the pending spin-off will create clarity and value for the enterprise.
