07:23 EDTBCS, MS, AA, ACHAluminum 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.
