Citi sees 'significant upside' in Aloca amid China crackdown
Citi analyst Alexander Hacking believes China's crackdown on illegal aluminum smelting will drive "significant upside" for shares of Alcoa. The past week has seen announcements that would suspend 440kT or 1% of operating capacity, Hacking tells investors in a research note. He has a Buy rating on the shares with a $45 price target.

Alcoa price target raised to $47 from $43 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Evan Kurtz raised Alcoa's price target to $47 from $43 on a rollout of valuation and left 2017 estimates largely unchanged. Kurtz said Buy rated Alcoa is a top pick in the group and believes late summer should be a good entry point ahead of the Chinese winter aluminum cuts.

Alcoa buy thesis unchanged after Q2 miss, says Citi
Citi analyst Alexander Hacking says the "modest" Q2 miss reported by Alcoa does not change his buy thesis. Higher ali prices will be sustained by Chinese supply-side reform and Alcoa will continue with "solid execution and sensible capital allocation," the analyst writes in a post-earnings research note. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $45 price target.
