Aluminum manufacturers as a whole are looking for about a 9% bump in demand, which should impact profits favorably. U.S. commercial aerospace (e.g., Boeing) has huge backlog of aluminum planes to pump out and is ramping up production considerably. No hiccup in the recovery will stop this bump in AL demand. This stock price has sunk to the point that under anything better than incompetent management, it can only go up if the economy stays on track for 2013. Feb 20-21, 2013 price dip makes nice buy point.
