Goldman is lowering its 12-month aluminum price forecast to $2,400/ton, from a prior $2,650/ton, though the new target still represents a healthy increase from aluminum's current price of less than $1,900/ton. The firm expects production cutbacks from Chinese companies, some of whom are losing money, to bolster prices. Aluminum makers such as AA, NOR, CENX, ACH, and KALU have had a rough year.
