Buy
Alcoa upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Alcoa to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $11 from $10.50. Analyst Timna Tanners said aluminum and alumina has become a lesser portion of Alcoa's earnings yet shares have become increasingly correlated to aluminum pricing while aerospace exposure now leaves it with an estimated 75% of its earnings levered to the segment. Tanners is confident in an upswing in aero-heavy downstream results and sees engine deliveries up 10% in 2016 and 18% in 2017. The analyst views the recent pullback in Alcoa shares as a buying opportunity given reduced commodity exposure and increased aero contribution.
