07:23 EDTMS, ACH, BCS, AAAluminum glut won't slow price increases, Bloomberg reports
The record glut in aluminum will not slow a rise in prices because of delays in getting metal from warehouses, even as Barclays (BCS) advises investors to sell and Morgan Stanley (MS) says it has the worst outlook of any commodity, reports Bloomberg. Stockpiles will expand for at least the next four quarters, reaching a record 8.67M metric tons by the end of 2013, Barclays estimates. The bank added that production will exceed demand by the most since 2009 as output expands from China to Saudi Arabia. Futures will increase as much as 16% to $2,400 a ton in 2013, according to the median of 29 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. The gains are forecast as the metal is not always available.

The Bank of England said that all but one of the eight banks passed its stress test. The one bank, Co-operative, needs to submit a revised plan to strengthen its balance sheet. Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds (LYG) and Co-operative were found to be the most susceptible to a housing crash and spike in unemployment. RBS and Lloyds passed the stress test, however. Both banks need improved capital positions, but have already put in place plans to do so, the central bank's Prudential Regulation Authority stated. Reference Link

05:47 EDTAAAlcoa to acquire TITAL, terms not disclosed
Alcoa announced plans to further expand its global aerospace business through a definitive agreement to acquire privately held TITAL. The acquisition will strengthen Alcoa’s global position to capture increasing demand for advanced jet engine components made of titanium. This transaction will further position Alcoa to capitalize on strong growth in the commercial aerospace sector. Alcoa projects a compounded annual commercial jet growth rate of 7% through 2019 and sees a current 9-year production order book at 2013 delivery rates. Almost 70% of TITAL’s revenues are expected to come from commercial aerospace sales in 2019. In 2013, the company generated revenues of approximately $96M, more than half of which came from titanium products. The acquisition will establish titanium casting capabilities in Europe for Alcoa, while expanding its aluminum casting capacity. TITAL employs more than 650 people, primarily in Bestwig, Germany. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

10:17 EDTMS, BCSFINRA fines Barclays Capital, Citigroup Global Markets, others $43.5M total
FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) – $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) – $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) – $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) – $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) – $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) – $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) – $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) – $4M; Needham & Company LLC – $2.5M. In addition, FINRA found that six of the 10 firms — Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Needham — had inadequate supervisory procedures related to research analyst participation in investment banking pitches. Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.
