I'm seeing a bargain with this stock, what am I missing?



AA- Alcoa Aluminum. Now, forgive my Tennessee Bias, but $8.47 seems ridiculously low for this company, long term.

Am I missing something?

Probably. Keep hunting until you find it, the market isn't that dumb when it comes to a big company like Alcoa.

I'll add AA to my stock tracker and do some research. Does anyone have any other stocks they think are undervalued? I have money sitting on the sidelines that I'd like to invest. Looking for low risk, high reward... (aren't we all? )

I've asked multiple times and haven't gotten a real response... What are the thoughts on PetroQuest (PQ)?

Was at $8 in November, now at 4.40... Look at their balance sheet, it looks like everything that caused the downturn is trending in the right direction once again

Thinking about picking up a few hundred shares and sitting on it for a little while.

From what I've read about it is that the technicals are fine, the market for metals is just completely saturated. Supposedly saturated through 2014.

I bought a shite load of ACAD at around 2 bucks. I still think its looking to make it to 13 so there is still some room there.

If they get FDA approval on the Parkinson Treatment they are working on this stock will skyrocket even more. Just a risky play though so beware.

way too small of a company for me to be comfortable with. I'm looking for multi-national, diversified companies with good balance sheets.

AA won't come back until (or, unless) aluminum prices ever recover.

While almost all other industrial metals prices are within 10-15% of their five-year highs, aluminum is selling 35-40% below where it was 5 years ago.

I owned AA for several years. I finally gave up on it last year when it hit $9+ for the first time in a while. I lost on it.....

I need diversification. I work in O&G so I need to play other markets when investing. Retail, technology, manufacturing, services...


Banking kinda scares me at the moment so I don't know if I'd look there as a personal preference. And with all the bitcoin talk...

I have been watching AA for awhile. Only 1.5% dividend. China subsidizes aluminum. Looks like a speculative play. Analysts are slightly bullish.

I know you work in oil and gas and its fine you don't want to invest in it BUT

would you rather buy amazon @ 3700x earnings and no dividend

or

SHELL @ 7x earnings with a 5.2% yield that rises every year

I know shell won't go up 10x in the next decade but amazon may not either, at the end of the day you can sleep like a baby at night if you own shell,conoco,exxon,chevron

Knowing how shell operates, I'd probably buy amazon...

I mean I know about the loss on iranian oil and I know their depleting oil fields are an issue....the convenience stores I own are shell, so im a fan....but we're talking about OIL, it's going to go up in price and a 5%+ yield re-invested over a decade will leave you sitting pretty i promise..

If that's a moral call, well OK. If it's an investing call, I'm gonna disagree, long term anyway.
