    B. Riley initiated coverage on aluminum makers on Thursday, preferring Century Aluminum (CENX) over Alcoa (AA). Analyst Lucas Pipes launched coverage of Alcoa with a Neutral rating and a $47 price target. Pipes writes that alumina prices have been elevated on "unique events," which is an oblique way of referring to tariffs.

    Should Century Aluminum Bears Brace for Hard Times?

    While aluminum prices are volatile, premiums tend to be sticky. The Section 232 tariffs have lifted US Midwest aluminum premiums, which should boost earnings of companies like Alcoa (AA) and Century Aluminum. Secondly, alumina prices (RIO) (XME) have already fallen to more normalized levels after Alunorte curtailment and RUSAL sanctions lifted prices to multiyear highs.

    Does Century Aluminum’s Risk-Reward Proposition Look Attractive?

    US-based aluminum producers including Alcoa (AA) and Century Aluminum (CENX) are trading with double-digit year-to-date losses despite the Section 232 tariffs President Trump imposed. Aluminum markets have been rattled by higher Chinese aluminum exports. China’s unwrought aluminum exports rose 12.8% in the first five months of the year and hit the second-highest level on record in May. Higher Chinese aluminum exports tend to put pressure on aluminum prices.

    What Could Work in Alcoa’s Favor This Year?

    Although aluminum and alumina have retreated from their 2018 highs after President Donald Trump softened the RUSAL sanctions, global aluminum and alumina markets are expected to be in a deficit by some observers, including companies such as Alcoa. Alumina prices are also being supported by the partial shutdown of Norsk Hydro’s (NHYDY) Alunorte refinery. Aluminum prices might also take support from higher alumina prices (XME).

    Century Aluminum's stock tumbles after analyst downgrade, in wake of first-quarter results

    Shares of Century Aluminum Co. were knocked 9.5% lower in morning trade Friday, despite first-quarter results that beat earnings and revenue expectations, as J.P. Morgan downgraded the aluminum company, citing higher alumina costs. Analyst Michael Gambardella cut his rating to neutral, less than two months after upgrading the stock to overweight. Gambardella still believes the tariffs announced on March 1 on aluminum and steel imports will benefit Century over the near to medium term, but "potential alumina shortages from the Alunorte refinery outage and the uncertainty surrounding U.S. sanctions on Russia could cause alumina prices to remain elevated for a period of time." The stock has now plunged 27.5% since President Trump announced the tariffs on March 1, while the S&P 500 has slipped 1.1%.
