15:39 EDTAAAlcoa: Technical conditions ahead of earnings
The shares are trading just above the midpoint of the six-month range ahead of earnings, last trading at $9.14. If the news is positive with good guidance, the first big upside objective would be at the September pivot high at $9.93. There is a substantial resistance layer above this area at the $10.20 level and then at the $10.60 area. The latter could be reached on an exceptionally positive report. If the news and outlook are poor, first support would be at $8.87, the 10-day moving average. There is support below this area at the $8.40 area. The lows of the last six months at the $8 area could be reached on an extreme price reaction to any major disappointment. The stock has been in a strong downtrend for over 18 months with basing attempts at the $8 area in the past year. That could be a positive for the shares if news supports an up move from current levels. It would take a breakout above $11 to substantially reverse the longer-term downtrend.

09:02 EDTAAAlcoa completes acquisition of RTI International
Alcoa (AA) announced that it has completed the acquisition of RTI International Metals (RTI). The merger, announced on March 9, became effective today. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each share of RTI common stock has been converted into the right to receive 2.8315 shares of Alcoa common stock, plus an amount of cash in lieu of fractional shares of Alcoa common stock. Alcoa expects RTI to contribute $1.2 billion in revenue in 2019, up from $794 million that RTI generated in 2014, with 65 percent of revenues supported by contracts over the next five years. RTI’s profitability is expected to reach 25 percent EBITDA margin in 2019. Contracts that underpin RTI’s growth include the recently announced contract with Airbus for finished titanium structural supply parts for the new A350-1000 aircraft program. Under the agreement, Alcoa will supply titanium parts for the fuselage, among other components. Alcoa expects global aerospace sales growth of 8 to 9 percent in 2015. Projections for 2016 and 2017 sales growth have nearly doubled to 8 and 13 percent, from 4 to 5 percent and 6 percent, respectively, showing the ongoing strength of the sector. Eighty percent of RTI’s revenues in 2014 were from the aerospace and defense industries. With RTI, Alcoa’s 2014 pro forma aerospace revenue increases by 13 percent to $5.6 billion. RTI is being integrated as a standalone business unit into Alcoa’s downstream Engineered Products and Solutions segment.
